    Not to sound insensitive, but this is the internet, man.
    I can hop on twitter and announce that I'm giving $30,000 to charity and I'm sure someone somewhere will still want to threaten or harass me for some stupid reason. It comes with the territory of being a public figure. If things came to a screeching halt every time someone decided it'd be a good idea to threaten and berate another person, the web would just be permanently seized up.

    I feel for Yvette, and everyone else involved; it's a super rough situation and nobody is a winner, but the more attention that people give to people doing shitty things just results in people doing more shitty things. It's dumb, but the quickest way for her to stop getting harassed like this is to not give the harassers any attention.

    I'm sorry but this doesn't work. :lol: If the "just ignore bullies" tactic worked, I wouldn't have gotten bullied and harassed as a kid. :lol:

    Never underestimate the hate of an internet incel.

    I don't know if this is an opinion I should keep to myself, probably yes, but it is kind of crazy hahaha, I mean these things happen all the time, it's just that this got a bit out of hand, those two should've just kept it to themselves and everything would've been fine, but since it's out there and I love to gossip like a school girl; I mean there has to be some sort of misunderstanding, there's no way you can hide a relationship for 6 months on tour when everyone knows you're married, that's fucking crazy.

    Looking at it from a cold perspective, both Mark and Yvette are an important part of their businesses, with their bandmates depending on them, I think it was very irresponsible of Mark to do something like that, because I can't blame Yvette for bringing the truth to his wife as soon as she found out, and Mark should've seen that coming. I don't know if those two will ever get along again but I don't think it should affect the bands too bad, we all fuck up.

    All I’m taking away from this is that Yvette, who I hadn’t even heard of or paid attention to until this stuff got brought up in the Holcomb PRS SVN thread and headed this way, has better character than Mark.


    The next time I look towards celebrities of ANY SORT for “moral compass” type stuff will be the first.....

    That's always been Spencer right?

    (I kid)

    Yeah they are, but the actual incident itself isn't a big deal. Dude does scummy shit and cheats on wife with someone else on tour. Whatever.

    Random assholes on the internet have made this a bigger deal than it is and it's damn shame any of this had to be made public in the first place*

    At some point nobody knew about this physical affair. Then apparently a letter was written and the truth came out from what I can deduce. Somewhere between that point and when it came out in the public eye, someone let it all come out. Someone didn't keep it private so now you've got everyone talking about it. Unless someone caught them in the act or blackmailed them it's likely one of the 3 partys involved is responsible for it becoming public. Maybe someone had a big public scene/fight? We don't know. The point is that whomever brought it into the public eye is why the public knows, which is what lead to the trolling and threats. This means assuming Mark said nothing, and his wife said nothing, and Yvette said nothing, then who said something? Who made this public?

    - Threats are certainly uncalled for but what I'm saying is someone, not necessarily one of these three, is responsible for putting it out there in the public eye and that's really bad in it's own way. Causing more problems for all three of them. People suck.

    Ugh, I hate posting like this, I'm not involved at all with social media or forums, I hate them, and rarely listen to Periphery anymore, just justifying myself so I don't look like some obsessed fucking stalker, but Mark and Misha were once my very favourite guitar players so I when heard that Mark went missing I started checking now and then, curious what would happen. Piecing it all together I assume this is what happened;

    Around the time Mark's wife found out that he's cheating, I assume he left the tour to go and try save his marriage, silence for a while, band says nothing, Mark missing on social media, people start asking questions, Yvette posted on Twitter hinting at being harrassed on tour or something, videos of Mark and Yvette together get unlisted, people start asking even more questions, Covet leaves Periphery tour, some person posts a screencap on a Facebook group showing personal messages of Yvette accusing Mark, then Mark confesses in that same group by Yvette's request.

    To be honest the first months I simply thought he left because he was gonna have a kid or someone was dying, why else would you leave a tour?

    I can't get the screen cap because I left Djent Shitposting for obvious reasons but apparently he lied to the entire band as well. Matt posted stating that they were under the same understanding Yvette was where Mark was leaving his wife. He said if any of them had known they 100% would have stopped it

    Holy smokes the virtue signaling. "We would have pulled him out of her instantly!" Way to throw your bandmate even further under the bus just to look like the shining star of morality and goodness.

    dude's manipulate and cheat on their wives a lot. It happens shit loads. Like every day. None of us dorks would be on here chatting about it if it wasn't a band we all knew and followed to some extent. He's a human being and humans do this shit. It doesn't (or shouldn't) affect us in any way other than maybe being a public example and lesson to not allow our emotions get the better of us. Period.

    i know it's a regular meme in this circle and stuff, but what an odd comment given the context

    Yeah no, that doesn't work either.

    You can lack sympathy for Holcomb all you want, but if these random internet bullies are the real problem blast them and put the limelight on them. Because you're effectively ignoring the real bullies here still, people only continue to act like degenerate monsters online because they hide under some implied anonymity like they'll never be found out and NO one ever holds them accountable. The only time I've seen justice in the real sense is when some asshole who swatted a streamer got actually caught and punished for getting the guy fucking killed.

    Cheating is a pointless shitty thing to do, but we going to actually put some effort into calling out and exposing randos who think they don't have any kind of unique identifiers to associate them to the very real crime they're doing?

    I think the way Yvette and Mark both handled it is insanely stupid, and I feel for Yvette as I know full and well the extent that a shocking revelation can put you off your game. But if you're getting death threats, blast these absolute morons on the internet. I'm not giving Holcomb a pass, but direct your negativity at people who think they can get away with death threats in addition to not giving Mark any sympathy.

    I can't be the only one who thinks like this, it's baffling.

    I remember meeting Mark on his first tour with Periphery during a guitar Q&A / meet and greet. Nice dude, really chill, you could tell it was a new thing for him to be out on tour with a band, when before he had only been know for his work with Misha in Haunted Shores. Fast forward to this and shit is just crazy. In a weird way, and I hope nobody takes this wrongly, it sort of humanizes them. The internet has a way of perpetuating this idea that musicians and world-known names are special, things like this happen and makes everyone realize that they're all just people. And people do shitty things, capable of bad behavior. I'd like to think this pocket of the internet, the progressive metal scene, can do better than this. Cancel culture or what-have-you is showing how ugly it can be when people's behavior becomes displayed in public light. For better or for worse.

    Best wishes to the dudes in Periphery. I'd hate to see this dragged out and become a permanent stain on the dynamic, but Yvette even said initially, that she hoped that the people involved can be held accountable; she didn't wanna ruin anybody's life, but she absolutely did not deserve this. She's such a sweet person and seems to be a very tender individual. Who knows; if he had truly left his relationship because he wasn't happy, it would've been one thing. To deceive someone like that, especially a peer in the music industry, is a pretty big fuck up. But I think the rest of the guys want this to be handled the right way. We'll see how it pans out in the coming days/weeks.

    Imagine being such a sad sack of shit that you tell a person you don’t know to kill themselves via internet because they did something you don’t agree with.

    I have no stake in this either way, because I don’t listen to Periphery, and Mark’s business is his business, but people are fucking losers.
