Everybody saved in the end... but what about those truly committed bad guys?
I don't believe in Universalism, but it does solve the problem of why a good God would let anyone suffer constant extreme agony for the rest of eternity. With Universalism nobody actually does suffer that agony.
KivinSim, I think there a variety of other possibilities beside that one imaginative idea of an eternity of extreme agony. There could be an eternity of dull boredom. Perhaps in hell people recite how great they were and how misunderstood. Perhaps they come to an end.( the view I think most plausible but of course cannot be sure of)

I remember a CS Lewis book where hell is a dull place of semiexistence and the people there can take a bus trip to heaven but find it entirely too sharp and abrasive for them to like.

That would also solve the problem.
