    Because it brings crap threads to the top of the forum. If it's dying let it die. If the thread was any good it wouldn't need to be deliberately 'bumped', would it?

    is that to be taken how i think its meant to be taken........ [​IMG]

    Anyways yeah, as its been said, it brings up thread that just dont need to be brought up, its stupid, i can understand bumping if its for a VERY VERY VERY good reason though. so that it is justified.

    Reminds me of a user that had lots of stickmen running around in his avatar. Can't remember his username at the moment though.

    Useful threads are bumped. Not some n00bish question as they can just search.
