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.

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
