Hawke, Robert Gerald. Robert Gerald Hawke (also known as R. Gerry Hawke, Gerry Hawke, Robert Hawke, Gerald Hawke, R. G. Hawke, and “Badgeless” on Kiwi Farms) is an Internet troll in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Robert Gerald Hawke emailed defamatory statements to a news website and others. Also, he posted defamatory and abusive statements with the userid “Badgeless” on a cyberbullying website called Kiwi Farms.
After sending defamatory statements and being sent a civil claim demand letter, Robert Gerald Hawke a.k.a. R. Gerry Hawke begged for forgiveness by sending multiple emails to the subject defamed with the following statements seeking forgiveness:
I’ve been carefully reading these two cases you sent me articles of, plus some similar cases online. I didn’t know the awards were that serious let alone the costs of defence. We’ve got some equity in a house and two older vehicles but even at legal costs of $35,000, plus whatever judgement, that would pretty much do us in. How do these defendants cope with that? The fees just to get them as far as the courtroom trial seem to be punishment enough.
Regardless of my smart alec emails I think I stepped in over my head. Like I said, the complications and costs just to get this to court seem to make me think twice (even thrice). I don’t know if you let anyone off the hook (like me) after you lay out the reality of what you can put me through considering your familiarity of the legal system.

Well, I guess my smart-ass remarks and fancy words haven’t done much for me now, have they?
My eyes were opened when I realized the possibility of my wife’s financial ruin would be linked to mine. She knew nothing of my communication with you until your phone call to her in which you advised her to warn me you would sue me. She had no idea I had been asking questions about you, nor that I was emailing you. She was upset with my questions and resentful that I would put her in a situation that would include her ruin if you sued me. It’s been tense around here, to say the least.
When you warn me of the serious consequences of my actions, as you threaten by pointing out I would be bankrupt. I really didn’t know it was that bad. Who could know? At my age there’s no way to start again. I’ve been jittery, nervous, and unable to sleep. I suppose I should have thought of those consequences as well. I have some mental health issues that I should never have risked making worse by getting involved. I guess one should look at the BIG PICTURE before starting with the questions. It sorta feels like I’m on the wrong end of your big stick and I’m hoping I can move out of the way before it comes down.
I DON’T CARE about my sources, THEY’RE ON THEIR OWN as far as I’m concerned. Do you want me to transfer some money to you If I give names, all emails, and all correspondence concerning my inquiries about you, and any other information you need? If it’s a substantial amount maybe I can make you some lump payments? I’m pretty sure you’ll keep the amount lower than the judgements you warned me about. At least that will be some relief.
