I don|t bump because you should only post if you have something to say and I have something very important to say:

Every bit of text you see on these pages is being stored 'somewhere'. And everytime a page loads from 'somewhere' on to someones computer at home, there's bandwidth being used. So ANYTIME a useless message is typed, it costs money to STORE it, and to TRANSFER it anyone reading the forums. So instead of bumping your post by saying 'bump this to the top!', or something like that, you may as well bump it by adding USEFUL information. ...and to say that bumping posts does not cost money, and anyone that says it is, is 'spreading lies', is NOT TRUE. It probably doesnt cost much, but it adds up! A fluff post gets handled just the same as a useful post on the server end of things, they all contribute to the bill, so it's a really good idea to not SPAM, BUMP, or post FLUFF.

Like many people said, it doesn't cost per post, but it probably does fill up space. I can only remember one time I have bumped up a thread, being less then 3 minutes ago. Now I feel bad about itI honestly don't see very much of it on this site, so I don't think that it's a big deal. But, it is a good reminder!

I think bumping once in awhile is fine its much better then saying "hello anyone there" after posting 1 min before. Or any other fluff and no its not mean. It just how i feel. and pleasedon't let the person that posted this make you feel bad bumping one in your life here is not bad.

They're not lies. First of all bumping is not a good thing which is why it's against the rules. And secondly, it does cost money. They don't pay money for every post that is written, but every post takes up space. So if there are a hundred or two hundred bump posts, those posts take up alot of space and the space they're taking up has to be paid for. So it does cost money when people bump. Each post individually does not cost them money, but a whole group of bump posts does cost them money. And third, even if it didn't cost money, it is disrespectful to the site owners to go around breaking their rules.
