Bumping old threads

Ok, honest question here, why is bumping an old thread so "taboo"?

I kinda see it as a trip down memory lane....

If this is a bad thing to do, why not dump all the old pages?

anyway, not a big deal, just wondering........


also. bumping old threads make me think of wearing retro clothing.......

ah, double meanings, gotta love it eh?

There's no problem with it when its relevant or an occasional thing because something was funny etc. Its frowned upon as being annoying when it is done incessantly or there is no real purpose. Threads that may have had issues sometimes come up, and those for obvious reasons should remain buried. Not everything needs to be deleted, but its just hoped that people will be sensible about it, you know?

I agree with the "Issues" piece....

But getting angry because someone bumps a thread is really silly. And then to belittle them or put angry faces or thumbs down - just not necessary. Take it up with a moderator of THAT SPECIFIC FORUM (like what Salome said).

I know this is probably something for "suggest," but I wonder if threads can expire (just be read, but not really "locked") to avoid TRUE hardships of bumped threads (prior issues between members.....banned members...etc.)?

true

my guess is that if it would be forum policy not to bump old threads at all we wouldn't have the similar thread option at the bottom of every thread


and I don't like bitching to other forum members in general
if you don't like something contact a mod

I agree with all of that. I think the smilies are not only not necessary as they are belittling, but not necessary as it is widely known that repetitive bumping and such is not preferred. Bumping is fine and good like Salome said which is why the similar threads feature is there, but it comes down to common sense.
I'm not really going to add anything new, but yeah take it up with someone if you have a problem with anything.
Bear, its all on your head if you do something with the sole purpose of annoying someone, or because you know it will be a shit stir.
