It's a tradition here at MPGH, whenever a user reaches 1337 posts, then 2k, 3k, 4k, etc. They're required to get a ban for at least 24 hours (Dave, Arun and Liz are not excluded from it). Same goes for birthdays. Just kinda happened after awhile, MPGH used to be pretty odd back in 2007. Plenty of weird traditions have faded away. Now they're not required but an option for those who want to keep the tradition alive.
