    who is/that is

    Can one say:

    a. He is a man that is a crime not to like.
    b. He is a man that it is a crime not to like.

    c. He is a man who is a crime not to like.
    d. He is a man whom it is a crime not to like.

    I had asked a similar question to this. That was about objects and this is about humans.

    Re: who is/that is

    The point under discussion in the other thread is not affected by whether objects or humans are involved in the '(it) is a crime (not) to' sentence. I suggest you wait until the question is settled in that other thread.

    A fresh discussion here might lead to more confusion.
