@72, Caliburn: Note that this user's name shouldn't necessarily be seen as deliberately mimicking the name of our admin. The Stargate TV series had a character named Osiris whose species was Goauld, and this user name appears to refer to that. I believe our admin's name refers solely to the Egyptian deity. Sometimes user names are similar without any intent to confuse. --Auntof6 (talk) 16:20, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
@Auntof6, Caliburn: I was more going off their edits than their username [1] [2], although their username is clearly related to some degree —72 talk 22:17, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
I too assumed a connection on the basis that their first edit was to Osiris' talk, otherwise I would've assumed that it was a mere coincidence. Regardless, it would have been an indef block either way. --George (Talk · Contribs · CentralAuth · Log) 07:03, 22 July 2017 (UTC)
