Stance on bumping a thread with no replies?

I've always thought bumping was generally frowned upon unless it's explicitly allowed in the section rules. There are three main rules that have always existed in tandem to discourage bumping and that's the "No Double Posting" rule, the 4 word/25 character rule, and the Thread Cutoff rule that mandates a thread be remade if it's gone more than than 30 days/1 month without a reply. If you're replying to someone before the cut off, you're not really bumping the thread for the sake of bumping it; you're just replying normally.
Bumping implies breaking at least two of those three rules usually. So by default yes, bumping is not allowed unless the section rules otherwise allow it, and usually they specify when and how it is acceptable to bump your thread, and how many times you're allowed to do so.
