Reddit to ban exactly half of the ‘ThanosDidNothingWrong’ community

Reddit to ban exactly half of the ‘ThanosDidNothingWrong’ community

And the fun continues today.

In an entertaining twist to an online phenomenon that saw movie fans reach out directly to Hollywood stars and directors, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War star Josh Brolin has delivered on some half-a-million Reddit users' greatest wish: delivering the final finger snap that will see half the internet forum's users banned from using the concerned sub-forum, /r/thanosdidnothingwrong.

According to the forum's moderator, the ban will officially take place Monday, July 9 at an unspecified time.

At the time of this writing, the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit has more than 660 thousand subscribers.

With the United Kingdom enjoying a sustained spell of hot weather, Yadav said he felt comfortable at Old Trafford. If you go back and analyse how Alex Hales and Jos played him, it was actually pretty smart.

The subreddit, which now has 498 THOUSAND subscribers and increasing on a daily basis, is planning to ban half its population in honour of the Mad Titan, Thanos. The announcement was made last week and 4 days ago, the subreddit had almost 300,000 subscribers.

With The Avengers 4 only a mere ten months away, a promotion (of sorts) has kicked off on Reddit that includes directors Joe and Anthony Russo and even Thanos himself, Josh Brolin. In order to ensure you're banned, you simply have to post in the subreddit. The Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit has not announced if they will follow the story of Avengers 4 and reverse the snap next May. Reddit engineers even came up with a special "ban enabled bot" that will pick the victims, while users prepare their "In the Soul Stone" subreddit for those who will randomly fall to the Snapture. Those who make it through the slaughter like in the film, will remain in the subreddit.

One subreddit will soon be perfectly balanced, as all things should be. Now, it seems Reddit users have found inspiration in his thinking, and are on the cusp of their own purge.
