The Controversial London System

As a joke in another thread, I suggested that the London was at least as controversial as the BDG.  It was all tongue in cheek, but then a couple of responses suggested that there was indeed a good deal of disagreement.

Tafl suggested the intriguing 1 d4 d5 2 Bf4.  Black must almost already be careful after 2 ... c5 3 e3 Nc6?! 4 Nc3, eyeing Nb5.  But is a reversed Baltic really that good?

Does the London guarantee an equal game for Black, or can White hope for more?  What are the merits of this most controversial of d-pawn openings.  Join in, or forever lose this forum to the BDGers...
