  • This episode explained a lot. I now understand why he's targeted, when he explained why he hadn't paid the court order, I realized he's an extremely stubborn person and an ideal target for trolls. He can't help responding and he easily loses his temper. When he said he's already tried ignoring it all I just don't believe him.
