Question for the board. What does.....

...."bump" means. I've noticed a few posters post this word as a message. For the life of me, I have no clue what this one-word post means. Can someone please enlighten me.

People use it bump a thread up from way down on the board so it will get more replies, and more people will see it....

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

*bump*

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

I know that makes perfect sense, but I've always thought of it more as a virtual hip-check.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.
