I'm afraid that the tack he has chosen doesn't show professionalism, is hostile, and recognisable as the veiled threats and implied FUD so commonly used by people facing a loss. This doesn't appear to make him affable. Anyone who threatens us, directly or veiled, is not someone to get along with. Also I suspect there are elements of untruth in his statements as well. It is exactly these kinds of bad traits in Russell that got them into this situation in the first place.
