Taking a page of out Thanos’ playbook, the subreddit, Thanos Did Nothing Wrong, plans to ban half of its users on July 9. Yes, that admins of the page are getting ready to perform a huge digital snap, removing half of all users in their universe. The action was first set to take place on the Fourth of July, but due to the holiday the plan was postponed. One of the moderators spoke with ScreenRant and explained the situation.
“[A Reddit-Admin] told me 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. Also, the engineers would not be prepared for a mass ban so close to it. However, I presented a solution to these two problems, and now I have their permission to ban half the sub! The random 50% ban will take place on July 9th. The admins are designing a bot for me that will allow me to do the job in a quick and easy manner.”

While this is going to be a huge bummer for half of the subreddit’s users, it is a pretty cool thing to do from a nerd perspective. As the quote above says deciding who stays and who goes will be random, how they plan to do that I’m not exactly sure, but all I ask is that whoever does Reddit’s version of Thanos’s snap, which is this case is more like a click than a snap, is painted purple and wearing a golden helmet.
