Watch Infinity War's Thanos ban more than 350K people on Reddit

With the subreddit sitting at around 700 thousand members when the ban began, and the bot estimated to be banning 10 users per second, it could take almost 10 hours for half of the sub to get officially dusted. From there, one of the moderators suggested they should voluntarily purge half of their own members to honor Thanos' wishes and it would be "perfectly balanced, as all things should be".

Despite being one of the worst villains in the Marvel Universe, and the worst in the MCU hands down, fans seemed to take to Thanos after Infinity War.

Join host and queen of the Unsnapped Jessica Chobot, as she explains the origin of the upcoming Thanos-inspired purge and how it overcame objections from reddit itself. A special subreddit, "r/inthesoulstone", was set up for those banned but even beyond Reddit, the "unfortunate children of Thanos" have taken to Twitter to revel in the experience alongside their fellow Redditors. That already had over 29,000 subscribers Monday afternoon prior to the "Thanos snap". Josh Brolin, the man behind the Infinity Gauntlet, ushered in the random banning in a short video of him snapping his fingers. The Joe Russo Reddit account added a selfie-video from Thanos actor Josh Brolin's Instagram to the thread making the upcoming cull official.

So, what are people posting, you might ask?

Trump's former personal lawyer says his 'silence is broken'
Stephanopoulos, discussing his interview on air Monday, said that Cohen did not praise Trump "at all" during their conversation. Petrillo is a well-respected former prosecutor who has ties to the same USA attorney's office that is investigating Cohen.

For members of the Thanos Did Nothing Wrong subreddit, the fateful day is finally here. "But because the movie is so big and so propulsive, it just wasn't quite pushing us where we needed to go", said Anthony Russo, co-director of the film, on the scene with the Guardians.

"Let's manually balance this sh- by unsubscribing ourselves!"

Confirmation of the ban wave's start was revealed in a post by one of the subreddit's moderators, The-Jedi-Apprentice.
