I am personally of the opinion that it is just underutilized for various reasons. Possible because a lot of gym goers have weak core strength from not performing lifts like Deads and/or squats, making standing OHP hard for them. Or it could be the simple reason that people are lazy and would rather sit or lay down that stand and do a lift.
Just my opinion on the matter.
While I have nothing against a seated press, I agree with you Josh.

There might be only one other person in my gym who does OHP. As far as I can tell, I'm the only one who does a push press.
