Can you point out what is hostile in the letter RMS wrote?

RMS consistently explains why he differs with Open Source, or those
who call Linux just that, and not GNU/Linux.  The fact that he is
consistent in the presentation of this disagreement whenever Free
Software and Open Source are confused, or where GNU/LInux is called
Linux does not make him a hostile person.  I've never seen him call
someone an idiot, or incompetent or any other derogatory name for
disagreeing with him on these issues.
