I don't agree with the bump acronym. Bumping isn't necessarily meant to bring up your post, it's meant to bump up the thread most of the time.

What he means is that in most forums (haven't seen it much on DDF) "Bump" is not used for quoting a specific question, rather to bring up an old thread which has been forgotten.

You can bump threads you haven't posted in. Actually, many bump posts just so they can start following the thread, by having it show up in "new replies to threads you've posted in".

Like you said, I don't recall seeing that on DDF... maybe ever.

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bump_%28Internet%29#Thread
When a member posts in a thread for no reason but to have it go to the top, it is referred to as a bump or bumping. It has been suggested that "bump" is an acronym of "bring up my post";[17] however, this is almost certainly[original research?] a backronym and the usage is entirely consistent with the verb "bump" which means "to knock to a new position".[18]
