To me, and I dare guess, to most people, the actions of RMS are not

be a problem nomatter how enormous his contributions are.

I hope that you do see that there is not a general agreement that the
term "personality quirks" covers the behavior being dicussed.

This is not a debate about whether or not RMS has done enough for
free software for his behavior to be excused.
