    I wasn't talking about staff, I was talking about the thread starter.

    Rules must be objective. This well meaning proposed criteria is unfortunately far too subjective and could never be enforced efficiently.

    Lest we forget there is already a rule proscribing “needlessly short noncontributory posts” - for the fifth time mentioned now in this thread, why hasn’t it been enforced to delete Daniel Owens’ “Bumps!”?

    Would you prefer just a "bump" instead of the following question?

    There are filters on the New Posts page that allow you to view only Domain Discussions and no sales threads, along with other options. We recommend using those options when applicable to your interests.

    This thread is about bumps in discussion threads. The majority of his bumps are in the marketplace. He does not have anywhere near 1,000 bumps in discussion threads.

    We listen, and we've made many changes thanks to member feedback. However, the decision is ultimately ours, and we will not always agree.

    In the majority of cases, we agree. As we've explained, there is at least one scenario in which it is necessary, and therefore, we need to figure out how to avoid bump abuse while allowing it in the scenario(s) that are necessary.

    Explained in this post: https://www.namepros.com/posts/6668759/

    In the meantime, we are going to clean up obvious bump abuse. Give us a couple days, and if you still notice any "bump" text with nothing else written in the discussion post, then please Report it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Update: Rule 1.14 has been updated, which addresses the purpose of this thread. If anyone has a suggestion for the new rule or wants to recommend a modification to it, please start a new thread. Thanks.

    Thread Status: Resolved and closed.
