** Chris does have a tenuous grasp of what a troll is, however he doesn't accept the idea that many of his Trolls are fake personalities and identities. While he accuses his enemies of lying quite a lot, he doesn't seem to be able come to the conclusion that their entire existence is fiction. A good example is his "Sweetheart" Bianca. While Chris did learn "she" was playing him like a harp, he doesn't realize "she" is three bored dudes on the internet.
