Rejected Post : Do not bump old threads.


I am unsure if this is the 'best' place to ask this ... but I am struggling to find any better location or communication method for it .

Anyway .....

I recently came across a thread posting a question about a couple of tables and the content therewithin.

I read then Accepted answer to the OP's question, and felt that it was inaccurate and misleading.

Hence I replied to the thread and posted my quite reasonable questions about the previously accepted solution, and suggestions as to why it might be incorrect.

I did this in order for other readers finding the thread, not to be mislead by an incorrect conclusion to the original question.

A little while later I received an email telling me that my post was rejected.

After loggin into my notifications I see the reason is 'Do not bump old threads'.

Now I am sure there are reasons why you do not want old threads bumped.

However, I am struggling to find what reason would take precedence over correcting incorrect information ?

Is the 'truth' and correctness not paramount for a community such as this to provide the best value ?

Many Thanks
