If you are ontributing something new and interesting to the discussion "bumping" the old conversation is fine (and in some cases desired over making a new thread). What we dislike is people posting just to bring topics back to the top, even when they actually have nothing to add to them.
Thanks for a warm greeting, while I doubt each of those words were directly aimed at my one account, it means enough to send me a welcome message. Might I ask, this? I have read over the rules and understood them well, I see how bumping old conversations, threads, and posts is lookeddown upon, and the reason I have an infamous history of doing just that, save for my little time here, I want to know, just how unacceptable is it to bump old posts, even accidentaly at first? Thanks again.
