What is "bumping" and "sticky" ?

What is bumping? and how and why is it done? Also, What does "sticky" in the first four posts in this forum mean? Thanks

bumping is adding a pointless response in a thread to keep it up on the portal page so more people will see it.

a sticky is a form of post that always stays at the top of a forum, generally because the moderators have decided it is important

In Boston quite a few years ago there was Captain Sticky. When you got up in the morning you would find your car covered with road trash stuck to it with body fluids. I don't think he ever did an Aistream though. bummp

What do you think of XYZ Airstream repair? Anybody here any bad things about them?

I've heard that they use a small torch with a reducing flame to soften the skin before they bump out the dents with a dolly. It's better than the sticky suction cup used by their competitors.
