* No Spam. Spamming is posting the same thing several times. "Bumping" (posting to move a thread up on the forum list) and cross-posting (posting the same thread in several forums) are examples of spam. I notice this is occuring more frequently as of late. Yet I've never seen a MOD or Nifty post that this is a violation of the rules. Either the rule needs to be updated/changed or the members here need to be aware that they are not supposed to BUMP posts. Usually the reason a post starts drifting away is because (1) no one has any further input, (2) no one has a comment or suggestion, or (3) no one wants to respond to a controversial topic. In case you can't tell, I find BUMPING annoying.
