      I've noticed a lot of old threads being bumped lately, mostly by new members. If you're going to bump a thread you find several pages down, please make sure you have a good reason for doing so!

      Please define what you mean by "bump" and why it is bad to do it? Thanks.

      "Bump" means that you posted to an old thread, and have "bumped" it to the top of the list. It is not inherintly bad, but can distract from current threads if its bumped for something simple like "my car has xyz too". It can be good if there is new information, or a resolution, but more often than not its new members posting to old threads with questions that are answered in the thread.

      This is either funny, or really funny.

      Spambot... For every post? REALLY?!!

      Spambot... REALLY?!!
      OK I signed up and logged in and now I have to pass the spambot test for every post?
      This is ridiculous! Just how much does Progressive pay you every time I want to post a comment or question and don't go playing the security card, this is just exploitive.

      You were able to post here, so I think you should be able to post anywhere. Try again. If it's still not working, send me a PM.

      Go into whichever forum you want to start a new thread under and then click the button at the top left that says "Post New Thread."
