    Bumping

    My policy on bumping and in reply to Locigo's thread is this -

    Deliberate Bumping is bad Forum practice and is not acceptable on normal threads.
    I will never bump a thread.
    Having said that it is easy to bump a thread by making an innocent comment, so any objection to bumping is simply peeing into the wind.

    The exception are Polls, which must remain near the top of a Loop post list whilst active.
    So for all Polls I create, if progressive posts place the Poll too far down the list, I WILL bump them.

    • @Ro... So trivial, that the OP of the very thread in question 'loves' your comment.

    • OK. I've already said I don't think bumping is a problem, if done with restraint. But as a counter a..

    • I am just so fed up with this site talking about itself.

    • @Pe... Oh no - I've had enough of arguments for now!

    • @Ry... Okay, fair enough. But I haven't read that thread, and why did you not comment on it, instead..

    • @Pe... Oh, no - not at all flat! In fact, very hilly indeed! You need good, sturdy legs to get arou..

    • @Pe... Thanks Peter - I realised that about two hours ago ^ ^ ^ :0D

    • I understand but I prefer other subjects so I will leave the discussion to you.

    • I can pronounce :

      "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch" though.

      It's my part..

    • @Bl...

      It is a trivial subject, but as Locigo raised a thread criticizing ME directly for bumping..
