Default Unanswered: Is it against the rules to Bump a thread?

Is it against WI Rules/Policies to BUMP a thread? In other words, can a person type BUMP and it not be considered spam? Is it ok to do this?
Someone asked this question the other day and and several people replied to it, but none of them were Admins or Mods. I have checked the FAQ and the Rules and have found nothing about Bumping threads being against the rules so I would like an official answer about it please.
If you think you know the answer but can not provide a link to where it is stated in the rules or faq's please don't guess.

Bumping is allowed in the Gift Exhchange ONLY! Look at the second post on the link provided. I bumped the thread, and that is what a mod wrote after editing it.

Thank you for posting this link...I still hope for a more official statement from an Admin or Mod....but...this leads me to another question. Should we be reporting threads where we see someone has BUMPED the thread?? I have bumped and see bumping all the time...should I be resporting it??

Excellent question! Bumping is permitted in the GE only. It is considered spam in the open forum. I hope this helps.

Bumping is when a person post a reply on a thread that only says "BUMP" or something similar or spammy like that, in order to make the thread go back to the top of the "New Threads" listing or to make it appear there is a new post so others will come and read the thread.

Yes it helps very much! Thanks for an official answer. It is greatly apreciated.
I think it would be nice if it was included in the FAQ's. If it is already there...I could not find it.

You can only bump in the GE, but other than that, don't bump!
