You respond to a message, and it bumps it back to the top of the list where everyone can see it. So, if someone wants to keep a topic current, without necessarily contributing, they respond with "bump" or "^" or anything.

The other thing a bump or a ^ does it put the thread into 'your postings' (currently disabled, but hopefully will be restored soon).

Useful if you want to 'mark' a thread for easier retrieval later.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
