I'm that minority too. Don't really see what all the hub bub about the timeline and Oracle is about. Of course I was reading comics before the Killing Joke and before Oracle, so maybe that makes a difference.
Maybe. I read and liked "The Killing Joke," but I just don't get the attachment to the old, ever-attenuated and misnamed "DC timeline," which like Marvel's continuity is so ridiculously convoluted and self-contradictory as to be a waste of time.
There came a point where the timeline and continuity became more important than telling good stories. No doubt in a few years that rot will set in for the 52 as well.
Me, I like it simple: The past happen then and the present happens now. No exact dates or timelines.
