18,335 people have subscribed to Alley Oop on GoComics.com. Yet, this board is filled with the carping, and caviling of a dozen or so members of a perennial gripers’ gallery. The gripers have made it virtually impossible for ordinary fans of this strip to have a pleasant exchange on this board. -How about we hear from the great silent majority? The tens of thousands of people, who read this strip regularly here, and derive enough pleasure from the experience to come back for more? -Constructive criticism is great. Continuous, carping and griping is just plain toxic. -It’s time for a revolution! Lets take this board back from the bullies in the griper’s gallery.
