    Why would you bump your ad to the top to announce that it is "sold", or worse yet that you "decided NOT TO SELL". I mean you are knocking VALID ads down, to put your item (which isn't even available anymore) back to the top. That's just bad form and RUDE!:thumbdown:

    13. Do not bump a thread more than once per week.

    "Bumping" refers to posting useless information, making unnecessary corrections or updates in a post, posting one-liners (such as "Bump," "Back to Top," "BTT") or any other action to deliberately keep a thread hot or to bring it to the top of its Forum. Excessive bumping is rude and selfish, and does not respect the right of other members and participants to have their posts viewed and responded to. In order to strike a balance between a legitimate wish to refresh a post or topic that has not been satisfactorily answered, and the needs of other members and participants to have their posts viewed, members are allowed to bump their own posts only one week after the post was first entered, or one week after the last bump. Members shall not "bump" a thread initiated by another person.:rolleyes:

    If this is even in your top 20 of things that piss you off...you need to back away from the computer and go outside.
