Warped Tour attempts to ban moshing, crowd surfing

Although organizers of the Warped Tour have attempted to prevent mosh pits in the past (last year they asked bands not to ask for pits), this year they've gone a step further by hanging banners at each stage that say "no moshing/crowd surfing."

Perhaps just hanging the banners gives them added legal protection? Regardless, reports from today's Warped Tour indicate that some fans are indeed ignoring the banners.
