Rationale behind not bumping old threads?

I bumped an old thread:

https://www.wrestlingforum.com/genera...kalikes-7.html

because it didn't feel right to start an entirely new thread for something that is as timeless as wrestler lookalikes.

I intend to play by the rules, but I'm just wondering whether the rationale applies in all scenarios or whether that particular topic might be an exception.

I think it applies to all threads

What's the rationale for not bumping? Misleading people into reading old stuff?

So that new threads are not buried down the forum in favor of older threads. There are some cases when bumping an old thread is ok. You should PM a staff member if you feel like a thread should be bumped.
