Why when someone bumps a thread, they say "bump"?

I'm curious. Isn't bumping against.forum rules? So why not just play itnoff and quote someone instead of pretty much showing everyone that you intentionally bumped the thread?

  • I don't bump threads by posting "bump". Only idiots do that.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Arbiter 739 No matter how cleverly I bump my threads, they never reach hottopic. My most recent warning was also for Bumping improperly, too. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] x Foman123 x Wrong on both counts. Under your theory, an OP like you could keep a thread alive infinitely long even if nobody else were to ever respond to it. Any reply you make in a thread should be an on-topic reply to another user's post who posted after the last time that you did. This is the only rule of thumb we have ever given for bumping, and any post that is not within this guideline is most likely a bump.

[/quote] Their is a proper way to bump a thread? Oh wait bumping is against the rules. Also that really wasn't clever it was pretty obvious as I stated before no matter how you bump a thread it is obvious which is why it is pointless to do.

    It's not an English flag - old

    Your right. I propose every time someone bumps a thread they say "-blam!-". But isn't bumping threads frowned upon anyway? [Edited on 11.20.2012 3:39 PM PST]

  • I think its better when they just say bump, its more irritating seeing one person quote someone else a ton of times on each page to bump their thread. Your not fooling anyone so you might as well just say bump over and over
