    Yeah, this isn't something I would expect to see any time. I have a stinky and grumpy cat face all day and can't think enough about it. It's just so bizzare as I'm following Periphery and Mark since forever. Just.. holy fuck man.

    The Shitposting group I think has been one of the worst parts of all of this - it's been a day of non-stop bullshit which can't be making any of the parties involved feel any better. Not going to repeat any of it here however it's bad enough for the mods to actually moderate (which is saying something for that group).

    What Mark does in his private relationships is nobody's business but his, and it sucks that this got dragged out into the open by shitposters on facebook for everybody to gossip and internet outrage about. Otherwise good people can and will do shitty things but that nuance is too complicated for the internet.

    Yeah I'm more horrified/disgusted by the fact that Yvette was getting called a cunt/getting death threats and thought about suicide because of this.
    appropriate song for today :

    Seems like Mark realized the mess he has made. Hope It doesn't affect his band and music bisuness but who knows?!

    I'm mostly sorry for Yvette; it's never cool to play with others feeling plus the death threats from random shitty people.

    The Internet is inherently misogynistic. :ugh:

    I get the impression people started to find out they were in a relationship and assume she was complicit in the affair.

    Regardless, I can't comprehend what goes on in the minds of strangers on the internet who think it's ok to message and involve themselves in the lives of any of the people involved here.

    Eh, while I absolutely disagree with Mark's actions, I truly think everyone is blowing this way out of proportion. This is between them and only them. I highly doubt this will effect the band or his sponsors. Good people can do shitty things sometimes, I just think he handled it very poorly. Maybe it's because I'm a big fan of his, but it still doesn't change anything from my view. I just feel bad for Yvette is all.

    At this point Mark admitted he fucked up. Doesnt make it right, but now the real problem is the shitbags who will make it harder on them to move forward. Never was anyone else's business and it still isnt.

    Christ. Pour one out for Mark's wife.
    I can empathize with the situation, but damn dude, this was not the play. Just unfortunate to see. Stuff like this is hard enough to deal with without the internet being involved.

    Hope they can figure all of this out in the least-shitty way possible. I feel terrible for everyone.

    Just posting to say I support Yvette on this one - it's hard enough (though slowly getting better) being a woman in the guitar/prog community without being dragged into this drama by fans/incels/both. I hope she can weather the storm.

    Hope Mark can sort things for himself and all involved parties can move forward as well. I'm sure it is difficult with all the involved moving parts. His music is definitely a huge inspiration.
