I wasn't talking about bumping in general. I meant bumping posts with a question that already has an answer like when someone asks "Can you give us the download?" or "When's Level X coming?" without reading the post that already says/implies that it won't happen. Like what happened in my SCM post and a few others. About two people (both are trolls—possibly the same guy—but I didn't know that until much later) asked on that dead thread how to download that mod even though I already wrote on it that I personally removed the download links. Similar things happened to other posts in quick succession.
I didn't deny that it was trickery. I still want to see if people genuinely think that the links are broken. The title, author, and flair make it obvious to long-time members that it's clickbait, but others may not see it that way.
Also, I don't know who the hell downvoted that post. It was a 3:5 ratio.
