How do you figure? Have you even spent two seconds reading and familiarizing yourself with Russ' online conversations with women he has tried to "woo"? His abusive, controlling personalty shines through his online interactions with women usually by the second or third message and they flee.Take online dating for example, if it was just his personality - then he should have atleast some success through online dating.
I'm not sure how you can drop all of this "insight" into Russ' behavior when you don't really know anything about him. Read a little and stop white-knighting.
