Warning: Spoilers for “Avengers: Infinity War” ahead.
- The Thanos subreddit “r/ThanosDidNothingWrong” is heading toward a ban on half of its members to emulate Thanos wiping out half of humanity in “Avengers: Infinity War.”
- According to one user, the administrators have approved a 50% ban on the community’s 211,000 subscribers for July 9.
- The members are very excited for the looming purge.
Like the “Avengers: Infinity War” villain himself, the Thanos subreddit “r/ThanosDidNothingWrong” is seeking perfect balance among its 211,000 members.
According to Reddit user The-Jedi-Apprentice, administrators have approved a ban on a random selection of half of the community’s subscribers, fulfilling the subreddit’s destiny. Thanos would be proud, as he obviously succeeded in wiping out half of humanity by the end of “Infinity War.”
The-Jedi-Apprentice posted an update to the plan on Tuesday, saying that the “random 50% ban” will take place on July 9. The original plan was for the wipeout to take place Tuesday, but an admin told The-Jedi-Apprentice that “doing a massive ban the day before July 4 was a terrible idea, because many of Reddit’s engineers would be out with their families.”
But now The-Jedi-Apprentice has acquired the Infinity Stones – that is, Reddit admins are designing a bot that will allow the user to “to do the job in a quick and easy manner.”
“So, be patient, and thank you all for your support,” The-Jedi-Apprentice ended the message with.
One user responded, “The Admins saw 14 million possibilities, this was the only way,” alluding Doctor Strange’s words in the movie. Another said, “There should be a reddit trophy for getting banned/spared.”
This online community is very chipper for being on the verge of decimation.
At least they are thinking rationally.
