Three months isn't that long. This isn't IRC. If a thread is old it means that people who have seen that thread up to that point in time haven't had anything to add. That doesn't mean that someone won't ever think of something to say. If someone posts a response that means there is someone who is still interested in the thread.
Ideas don't expire from mere age. Not allowing bumping of a very long thread or a thread of reactions about e.g. Obama's inaugural address I can understand, but what is the reasoning behind forums' disapproval of bumping short threads that aren't dependent on recent events?
