3rd Party Bumping No Longer Allowed

As of 1 PM EST on May 2, 2006 we are no longer allowing users other than the original poster to post a message to a Buy, Sell, and Trade thread solely for the purpose of bringing it to the top of the thread list (AKA "bumping"). Only legitimate questions or concerns may be posted to a thread.

We are implementing this rule for a number of reasons:
1. To prevent the bump trading. Bump trading makes it difficult for new or occassional sellers and buyers to use the BST forums.
2. To make tracking down threadcrappers easier.
3. To prevent users from bumping merely to increase their own post count.

Users who break this rule or attempt to circumvent it will be warned and if the behaviour continues, they will be banned. Bumps from before 1 PM EST on May 2, 2006 are exempt.
