Adding a "bump post" puts the thread back to the top of the forum so
people with AC/Heater Blower issues can easily find it... thus keeping
the forum clear of redundant questions relating to same. It eliminates
the need to search through the forum, saves bandwidth and helps prevent
wasted space on internet servers. This post gets about 3100 hits every
year elsewhere on the net and by my reckoning has probably eliminated
that many redundant posts on the net.

Yeah, I know what a bump post is. My point was that since you didn't
quote anything, it may be hard for people to know what you're bumping.
This is what happens when bullshit "web forums" link themselves to Usenet.
This is being posted to *Usenet*, which is NOT the same as some web forum
(vBulletin) that you are posting to. There is no "top of the forum" here,
and when you don't quote something of which you are referring to, it can
be difficult for others to understand what you mean.
If you want a real source of information, learn what Usenet is, and how to
use it properly.
If you're not on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

Top of the forum in this case, by default, is the most recent post by
date and time stamp. By the way, if you don't have any constructive,
on-topic comment, why not save your unsolicited quasi-technical,
contextually worthless critique for someone who really cares? Frankly,
I couldn't care less and I doubt anyone else does, either.
