About the topic of bumping threads...
I see that it does get to some people. I'm not sure why.
I kinda like it and I'll tell you why..
... because I'm new and probably have never seen it.
(probably the main reason you old-schoolers do not like it.
you've already seen it!
... if it's bumped..it's probably a good thread or has the possibility of a discussion. Just because it's been talked about before..It should be never spoken of again?
... I periodically (when main couple of pages are slow and old) will randomly just hit like page 500 or whatever. 08' or 09' whatever..just scan the titles and there might be a funny or something that I want to comment on.
(I don't see this as a crime or bad thing to make a comment on a message board)
I bumped an old one one time and all of a sudden there was a few people in there talking about how stupid it was to bump and all this crap.
I was like
is the big deal.
it was my first time seeing it....had something to say.
That's it.. nothing more nothing less
I do not go searching for things to bump but I just don't think that it is a big deal.. so some of you guys that have been around for a few years please school me. Explain why this is a problem and why it gets to so many of you.. Maybe once I understand I would feel differently and think hard before ever bumping anything ever again.
Basically..just what's the deal? What is the unwritten rule??
