Im pretty new to forum posting and have been wondering what it means when someone posts "bump" in a post and also when someone "spams" a message?

Cheers

To bump a thread on an Internet forum is to post a reply to it purely in order to raise the thread's profile. This will typically return it to the top of the list of active threads. Bump stands for "Bring Up My Post".

and we usually spam a post if its a duplicate of another thread. or its simply not suitable for the forum.

bump - bring up my post (basically it makes it go to the first page of the forums again so it is noticed)

we must of been typing at the same time

I'm not sure bump does stand for that, isn't it one of those post acronym things, like people think 'posh' stands for Port out, Starboard home? I thought it just meant you bump your thread back to the top.

Ok, but if you want to get picky you said it was an acronym, [COLOR="Red"]B[/COLOR]ump [COLOR="Red"]U[/COLOR]p [COLOR="Red"]M[/COLOR]y [COLOR="Red"]P[/COLOR]ost, i was just pointing out that i don't think it is an acronym for anything, i wasn't questioning the meaning or intention of the word.

The first link didn't work because it left the closing bracket as text and not a hyperlink :)

I don't think BUMP means Bring Up My Post either. I think that may have been made up by people after it was used and then spread.
