Question "Bump" question...

Okay, I"m less than current on techie-talk and I've just gotta ask: when someone places a post, and another person says "bump" -- what does that MEAN? I see it alot from folks in regards to dogs available for adoption...as in, "oh, he's beautiful! Bump!" , etc.
Thanks!

The bump keeps the post near the top of the page on the site, as if people were constantly commenting on it. It's so the post won't get lost at the end of the site.

Bump means you're bumping the post up to the top of the list of posts on the forum page by posting a new reply (usually without much content.)

Bump (Internet), returning a thread to the top of the list of active threads (acceptable reasons range from wanting to remind others that the question with which the thread started is still unanswered to offering new information that relates to an old thread; a less agreeable practice—as unwelcome as spam—is to do it simply to raise the thread's profile); the term is related to the concept of "bumping (pushing) something up" though others suggest that it is an acronym for "Bring up my post" (however, "bump" applies to any post in a thread, not just one's own posts)

Well, now I get it! Thanks, everyone! (No need to "bump" this back up there...:-) )
