Say I was poking through someones portfolio, and I found something I liked, or wanted to critique, only the last comment made on it was a year ago, or something. Should I refrain from reviewing it? Or would it be okay if I did? And is that even called thread bumping? Ugh, I'm lost...

It's up to you. Just keep in mind that for a thread that old, it's unlikely the author will ever see it.

"The trouble with Borrowing another mind was, you always felt out of place when you got back to your own body, and Granny was the first person ever to read the mind of a building. Now she was feeling big and gritty and full of passages. 'Are you all right?' Granny nodded, and opened her windows. She extended her east and west wings and tried to concentrate on the tiny cup held in her pillars."
— Terry Pratchett, Discworld: Equal Rites
