Don't worry too much about him. He does it to me all the time too. He likes to twist things around and then respond trying to make you look like an a-hole and him the helpless victim of your attack.
It's extremely predictable and has actually become comical to me. Especially when I see him doing it to several other people as well.
That's literally his only move. And what makes it worse is that he is the thread hall monitier and is in every single one sounding just as ignorant as the last and it's so annoying
