Why are topics automatically bumped?

Can you explain to me why topics get automatically bumped in Discourse meta? Some topics do not need to be bumped because it can result in users answering questions on 3 years old topics. These topics appear to be bumped by @system for seemingly no reason.

That’s something I’ve always wondered too. Part of me doesn’t understand why it’s a feature.
