I was invading inside the Abyss earlier today to farm some Bonfire Ascetics. I love PvP and receiving an Ascetic upon victory beats farming those Ascetics all alone by yourself.
Now I received a lot of hatemail there and usually I ignore it, but this time I didn't due to scathing remarks and... a weird excuse!?
Character Information SL: 350 SM: Over 100m (Not leveling up) Weapon I was using: Ruler's Sword with Resonant Buff and Sacred Oath Buff

I invaded him four times in total. He sent me his first message after I had defeated him the second time. I ignored it. After I had defeated him the third time, he sent another message as seen in picture 1. I was confused about his hostility. Usually people send one hatemail and even if you invade them again, they won't send a second hatemail (!usually!). I responded with, "????" which you can't see in picture 1.

I have English and Japanese listed in my profile, and it appears that he was slightly confused about whether or not I speak English, resorting to racism. Okay, that one got to me a little since, well, I'm half Asian. I decided to respond because it seemed to me that he believed I was invading him deliberately, which I wasn't. I tried to explain to him that it is the game that chooses who I invade and not me.

Here I am asking him to stop being so hostile and acting like a child. Now this is where things get interesting. His son? I assume his son is no older than, what, 12, 13? I get it, we all played horror games when we were kids, but again, he makes it sound like I had some sort of vendetta against his son. Either he wanted to make me feel bad for invading his 12-year-old son or he was just using it as an excuse since, well, let's just say he wasn't the best and brightest player.

I was trying to be reasonable and calm, but this one particularly got to me. I really hate bullies myself and I always stand up for my friends, so being called a bully made me extremely sad. I took it seriously and decided to stop playing for the rest of the day.
Any advice? Should I just ignore it and forget about it or is there anything I could say to calm him down?
Thank you in advance.
