I grew up in Lincolnville, went away to college and am thinking of returning, but when I try to do research, I see that there such strong feelings - pro and con - about living in midcoast Maine? Why?

PRO: beautiful scenery, slower pace of life, cool summers
CON: Out of control taxes, fees, anti-business climate, poverty, nanny state, long winters

For the most part yes, mostly people who retire here from other states.

Is there an us versus them mentality, or are folks generally welcome?

generally welcome, interesting study recently found that people born out of state will be the majority in Maine in a few years.
