It could be anything. If something is bothering you or worrying you or bringing you down or upsetting you, is online aggression one of the mechanisms by which you attempt to alleviate it?
I only get agressive at things that make me angry already so I don't think so. Maybe some topics could be parts of some coping mechanism, but not the confrontation itself. Unless it's an objective topic like misogyny, violence against women, sexism etc.
