I don't know the show well enough to know if Barry was the first cyborg Archer met, but it is obvious that he despises cyborgs, and I was wondering if we ever learn why this is the case.

PAM: Oh that’s right,

Gillette is a human being!
But he won’t be for long if you
don’t clamp that artery!
-Archer, Season 4 Episode 3, "Legs".
Does he hate them because of Barry, or because of his fear of a Terminator-esque war against the machines, or for some other reason?
