People use it to "bump" the question to the top of the discussion list. The "New Posts" tab on the forum page is listed by time, with the most recent discussion at the top. So, by typing bump, it potentially brings the question to the attention of anyone browsing the Active Discussions.

Additionally, it pops the question up to the top of the "Discussions" list under "My Askville" for the people already involved in the question, either the question asker, question answerers, or other discussion participants.

People use "bump" to try to get other Askvillers' attention, whether to get more answers to the question, or simply to restart a stalled discussion.

"Bump" is just shorthand for "bump to the top of the list". Any comment would serve the same purpose, though. For example, if you were interested in trying to get more answers, you could type "hey, anyone else interested in giving an answer?". It would serve the same purpose by bumping it up to the top of the discussion lists.
