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.
The boring one, the one with Khan, the one where Spock returns, the one with whales, the dumb one, the last one, the one with Kirk, the one with the Borg, the stupid one, the bad one, the new one, the other one with Khan.
