HawkbitAlpha (often referred to simply as Hawk) is an inactive SBM member who first registered in May 2011. From December 2017 to May 2018, he served as the lead chat moderator of SBM, as the founder and owner of the SBM Discord server.
A highly-controversial member in his earlier years, Hawk gained infamy between 2011 and 2015 as a perennial opponent of sister site SBC, and a "persecutor" of SBM members he held a strong dislike for; the latter culminated in late 2013 and early 2014 with his usage of Alpha Company as a means of targeting harassment towards members such as Storm and Todd Phillips. Over time, however, Hawk gained a reputation as a low-level community organizer, and as one of SBM's more serious, rational voices. In addition, his work in spurring the banishment of several notorious members became something of a running gag among SBMers.
In December 2016, Hawk founded the SBM Discord server, which was officially chosen to fulfill the role of the defunct forum IP.Chat in late 2017. As the server's primary operator, he was appointed as a Chat Moderator in February 2018. Citing multiple reasons, he resigned as a Chat Mod on May 12th, 2018, transferring ownership of the Discord server to abney317 before leaving the site.
