Finally got this painted up, I think it turned out pretty nice!  

holy fuck I'm shaking.  Producer calls me at 12:15 says he'll be calling back in about an hour.   Called at 1255 and it was Mark pretending to be the producer, I mentioned  how blink-182online wa

Blink italia also said that those comments from Mark and his manager are defamatory and the guy sent a long letter to Mark, to which Mark hasn't responded.

And Mark's manager told him just to chill and stop being so formal (and whiny I assume). 

The fact that they wrote a Loooong newsletter to their fb page followers where it seems that is Mark's fault and they have been defamated made me laugh. Pointing at Jake as a Demon. I don't blame Mark and his staff if they got mad to the Italian fan page that like a vampires repost badly everything has been posted or said by Mark on his personal discord. Making an u turn and try to apologise badly in public to Mark, but writing in the news letter how badly they have been threatened by Mark staff and waiting a reply from him. B182 Italia staff if you read this message.. Start to be more conscious of what you are Always doing, if Mark write something in his discord needs to remain there, and if you want report it make sure you link the discord first or the source! 😂 

 

Just during the last tour in Europe when I talked with him in many occasion, he was telling me about how the Italian page was so active in repost etc... 👀

There was another page that was doing same thing in the past and Mark..stopped them as well! 🤦🏻‍♂️

There are just some lines that should not be crossed IMO, and I can understand both sides of it. Mark's discord is awesome, it's extremely positive and he genuinely just wants to feel like a normal dude and chat about random stuff with fans when he's bored. I'm in there, and despite some of the neat tidbits he sprinkles in occasionally - I haven't posted or even brought up anything from there as it feels like a safe place, and it's honestly just so cool of him to do.

The problem with these "safe places" (Mark's Twitch/Discord) is that typically Italia will come in hammering away with a million questions (usually from an alias so Mark isn't fully aware) and then as soon as the chat is over, there's a full recap up on social media. I think that bothers Mark to an extent, it would be somewhat annoying to me even if you are used to being in the public eye.

From Italia's perspective, they are dedicated to keeping their followers up to date and with nothing else going on - this is "content". They also try to get their followers questions answered which I can understand, but it's just kinda whack when they lurk and then post every single thing Mark said. At heart they are clearly die hard fans, and believe me - running blink fan socials, pods, etc. is not lucrative. (I lose money every month) So I don't particularly think the "ad revenue" is their goal in this, but can definitely see how it would annoy Mark and his manager.

It was cool to see that Mark says he appreciates the fan-sites regardless, if I were him I would probably just shoot Italia a DM asking that they back off a tad and I think they would respect that. But I haven't seen this FB rant or whatever so that bridge may be burned now.

Exactly, I'm in his discord as well and I noticed that! I talked with him recently only about pokemon go and I didn't want bother him with blink stuff. Pretty sure is not his only intent to interact with fan regarding b182 but enjoy also videogames!

 

Agree 100% with you 👌🏻

Italia you do shitty things, it’s not just the reposting of content. You talk shit about the band on your very public social media account and then act like you’re an innocent victim when mark says something and wants nothing to do with you. There’s a reason he blocked your ass a year ago and you had to beg him to let you back. We’ve all seen it from the start here. The band clearly doesn’t like you and has disliked you for a long time and want nothing to do with you, but they have to put up with you to not cause a pr problem.

Blink Italia is so lame. Guy is a fucking douche. It really bums me out that they are the main blink fan page.

Ry-Bread is doing much better work. I hope it pays off in the end.

+1 I back this sentiment

That newsletter is impossible to sum up, it's the longest shit I've ever read. I sent it to @Ry-Bread earlier and he had to use google translate to get through it.

It's just annoying to know that he sent some polite messages to Mark and his manager to clear things up while, at the same time, he was talking shit about them and crying to his followers in the newsletter.

didn't mark block him once and he came on here to post and freak out? 

Yes that is correct. Mark rightfully blocked him, he should have never caved and unblocked him.

Help @Ry-Bread I don't even know how to share it or if it's worth sharing

It's so long it won't even fit into normal translators that I could find lol... I don't even know how to begin a TL;DR either. But yeah, I don't know how publicizing the minor spat and sharing private DMs would help the situation... big yikes.
