is bumping threads forbidden here?

    Rules vary from blog to blog, so I am asking the moderators on Forum Vancouver for guidance. On Memebee Forum the mods had absolutely no problem with someone bumping threads. But on some forums that is a no-no. So what the rules here?

    I personally think bumping old threads is a good idea because it cause revision and revisiting of old, half-forgotten matters. Also, it now reviews them in the light of facts and events available since when they were first posted.

    This is the same thing as the difference in law between malum in prohibitum ( bad because it is prohibited ) and malum in se, meaning bad in itself. Lying, persecuting, plagiarizing, are morally wrong. But bumping threads is like going through a red light. If it is forbidden, that is only because the makers of the rules feel it will create problems. Intrinsically, it is nothing unethical.

    Advice, mods?

    It's not forbidden.

    Thank you. Okay then, I will sometimes explore the past and bump carefully and selectively. I want to revive threads whose content jibes with today's issues, and ask present posters to jump in and comment. We should not live in the past, but by refreshing our awareness of it we understand past, present and future in a more integrated perspective.
