It wasn't intended as Nabble-bashing; I was trying to inform the poster 
about accepted netiquette.  But as Iggy said, I should have tried to be 
more encouraging in my post.  I'm sorry for the tone, but I do think 
it's important to protect the usability of the list/forum (bumping is 
considered rude in most forums I know).

I probably should have just ignored it until the second offense.  In the 
end, though, it seems the bump was worth it, and I'm glad he got the 
answer to his question (which I did not expect).  :-)
