Default thread bumping

Is it just me or is it getting out of hand on the FS section?

I'm guilty of breaking the "24" hour rule by 8 hours or so but I'm seeing posts bumped by the original thread poster over 10-15 minutes.

Its really frustrating me. Maybe I'm just a crybaby about it, but its happening often.

I just looked at 6 different posts, all 6 of them had the OP post at least twice today within a max of 5 hours and a minimum of 45 minutes.

i just deleted 50+ threads for the bumping rule... please use the report post button on every thread that you see out of controlled bumping.. remember it has to be "ttt" "" or something like that to be considered a bump and has to be more than once in a 24 hour period... that will help all the moderators out to find the posts faster.... thank you all...

No, thats not what the rules say -

"One “bump” or “TTT” per day(a day is a 24 hour period starting at 12am and ending at 11:59pm). If you surpass this, the thread may be locked and/or removed."

Rules are posted in stickies at the top of the sale forum...

You'd think it was simple.
