NUS considers changing name of student portal MyISIS because of obvious reasons

Aside from decimating cities in Iraq and Syria, mass murdering Christians, Yazidis and non-Sunni Muslims among other crimes to humanity, the Islamic State can soon add one more casualty to the list — the student online information platform of the National University of Singapore (NUS) known as MyISIS. 

NUS’ Integrated Student Information System (ISIS) portal is less about the atrociously bloody mangling of Islam and more for students to pay school fees, check examination schedules and other administrative functions. TODAY reports that the school will be conducting a review to determine if changing the name will be necessary — and maybe they should, especially since MyISIS kinda devalues the extremist militant group to make it sound like an exclusive My Little Pony toy set. 

Just last month, Dunman High School went ahead with renaming their own ISIS portal, switching it to the less menacing acronym of DHIS — Dunman High Information System.
