I don't really have a preference, I think it depends on the post. I've been on sites that had rules where they don't want old (or really long) threads bumped up and I've been on other forums where they'd get all pissy if you started a new topic and there was already a similar one in existence.
I really think it's dependent on the type of thread. Example: I see no point in bumping up a 3 year old thread where someone is asking for advice on a good breeder in X location, just to promote a specific breeder - I'm pretty sure that after 3 years the original poster already has their dog. What ends up happening is people waste time answering a question to someone who may not even be on the board any more. On the other hand, if you have a thread about your dog that is ongoing and has posts that can go back several years, I see no problem with that at all and it can be real neat to see the progression. The hair growth progression, for example, wouldn't work as well if it was a new thread each time (or my hair growth pictures showing Brody's belton ticking fading in as his hair grows out).
