"The points get hashed over; each side fails to convince the other and the thread dies away."

Exactly right Ole. And the point of this thread was to get varied views on opinions of Lincoln. All had a chance to express those views. Where the trouble always begins is once those views are stated, the posters feel the need to defend them to the death, back and forth, and over and over. State your views on Lincoln and be done with it. If your post is concise and well thought-out, no follow-up is needed. And hard feelings never have a chance to develop.
