There's even a wildly popular pro-Thanos subreddit called Thanos Did Nothing Wrong.

After users on the subreddit r/thanosdidnothingwrong floated the idea of randomly banning half of its subscribers in a nod to Space Grimace's master plan, the idea took on a life of its own.

This has seen a rash of new memes posted, as well as dozens of new petitions, including one to "get Benedict Cumberbatch to join so he can say 'It was the only way, '" and another one to give Tom Holland the list of bans in advance so he can spoil them.

Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same.

Yes, Thanos reaches the closing credits of Infinity War victorious, having wiped out trillions of lives with a snap of his fingers. Deepening the level of this joke, intrepid users have already set up a new subreddit, r/thesoulstone, to welcome those who fall victim to the random ban. "He told me that doing a massive ban the day before July 4 was a bad idea, because many of Reddit's engineers would be out with their families". They are looking into bots to make the mass-banning possible. However, I presented a solution to these two problems, and now I have their permission to ban half the sub!

Moving Brush Fire Destroys, Threatens Homes In Goleta
A northern California wildfire has spread into OR , triggering evacuations in parts of Jackson County. A fire at the Camp Pendleton Marine Base in the north county has prompted the evacuation of 750 homes.

One of the subreddit's moderators told ScreenRant that the 50% ban - which would be as random and arbitrary as Thanos' cull - would take place on July 9.

The randomness is the key here.

The banning was inspired by the end of Infinity War, when. well, you probably get the idea.

So prepare yourself. Come July 9, if you're a Thanos Did Nothing Wrong member, you might find yourself suddenly not feeling so well, wishing you had your own Time Stone to turn back the clock and escape your cruel fate.
