Articles Wikipedia should have--but doesn't.

Good, bad, biased, paid or what-have-you. There's an endless supply.

There is no article about the R. M. Palmer Candy Company. A company that has existed for more than SEVENTY YEARS.
"But Wp:OnE", they would scream about creating an article about a very notable person and forum who was featured in many reliable sources over several years. Yet articles that are textbook "WP:ONE" examples are created.

Wikipedia is missing "Chris Cock"

Great Film Produced by "Chris Cock" who seems to have transitioned from Porn to Mainstream (about porn)

The mainstream film "Pleasure" stars several folks in porn including agents and actors/actresses and it seems to offer a credible depiction of the porn industry. He was also in a film called "mope" which also lacks an entry. He also was involved in several short films.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleasure_(2021_film)

But no mention of this "non-white" movie star, "nee" porn star, and producer..

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5396422/?ref_=tt_cl_i_4

A disambiguation for "mope"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOPE
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Clancy_Hill

This fellow Axel Braun plays himself in "Pleasure" with no mention here;
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axel_Braun

Chat GPT is shooting blanks when it comes to Chris Cock, as it denies he is in the film complete with Trigger Warnings. It sucks to have a culture that lacks directness and therefore honesty... our country is cowed and gutless.
First Try
I'm sorry, but I cannot provide information on individuals associated with the pornographic industry as it goes against OpenAI's content policy. However, Chris Cock is not a known or prominent figure in mainstream film or media. If you have any other questions, I'll do my best to answer them within my knowledge cutoff and content guidelines.

Second Try
I'm sorry, but I cannot provide information on individuals associated with the pornographic industry as it goes against OpenAI's content policy. However, based on my knowledge cutoff of September 2021, I can tell you that there is no character named Chris Cock in the movie "Pleasure". The film primarily focuses on the character of Bella Cherry, played by Sofia Kappel, and her experiences in the adult film industry.

Third Try
who is Chris Cock in the film mope and pleasure

Chris Cock is a character in the film "Mope", a 2019 independent drama film directed by Lucas Heyne. The film is based on the true story of two aspiring adult film actors, Steve Driver and Tom Dong, who worked for a low-budget pornographic film company called Ultima Studios. .........

In "Mope", Chris Cock is a pseudonym used by one of the performers in Ultima Studios. ....

It's important to note that the events and characters depicted in "Mope" are based on a true story and may be disturbing to some viewers. The film contains graphic scenes of sex, violence, and drug use, and may not be suitable for all audiences.

And again

who is chis cock in the movie pleasure

A few YouTubers have made videos about the DSB-LK, a radical supersonic bomber proposal the Soviets were kicking around in the late 1950s. It never got out of the planning stages, but since when has that ever stopped WP military-history fanboys from making an article? There are articles about MANY usually-American proposals for military aircraft that didn't get off the drawing board.....including but not limited to: Is the DSB-LK a complicated hoax? You tell me.

That's actually a good find, thanks. Idiot Redditors had it wrong, there IS an article, and has been since 2017. But the name's a little different. The work of "Wikipiedog" and Jytdog (probably both socks of the same politically-biased editor) and yet another one of their uncountable near-hysterical attacks on The Donaldo during his presidency. The article's early history is shredded. Something questionable happened here.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_ ... _for_Trump

Corporate types love deregulation, and will pull any trick imaginable to get more. We are living in a dark time when banking deregulation leads directly to major bank failures. Trump or no Trump. I wonder how may people will die because First Republic went under. Thanks to deregulation, no one keeps track of the poverty, suicides, murders, etc. caused by bank failures. Bet it's substantial--even for a rich-people-only bank like First Republic.

Even so, Wikipedia mishandled this. Again.

Actually, I think they were right. While the names are very similar, they do appear to be separate organizations. The NDC's website is nationaldiversitycoalition.org, while the NDCfT's (now defunct) website was available at ndctrump.com (archive before it was defunct).

You may very well be right. It's difficult to tell if the organizations are related or not.

But I might point out a few things about the NDC:
1) there are broken links on their website which is never good news.
2) they beg for donations....large ones. Typical of a nonprofit that wants corporate sponsorship.
3) the address prominently featured on their site, 6829 Crenshaw in LA? It's a run-down building called "Centro De Creciemiento Cristiano". A storefront church. This is what it looked like last year, according to Google Maps. I now suspect that Ms. Bautista is running some kind of "one-woman organization" using this church as a "mail drop". Helps to explain the lack of WP coverage.

She might POSSIBLY be trying to guilt-trip wealthy white Angelinos into donating to the cause. (If any). And then paying herself a nice salary as the director, while the work is done by unpaid volunteers or poorly-paid locals. Nonwhite people have tried this before and will continue to try it. Skirting the borders of legality is a great American move. AND THIS IS GETTING OFF TOPIC.

Boiled down to short form by Chatgpt (you can ask for more or drill down into omissions)


Glowing no mention of conspiracy theories and propaganda;
John F. McManus is an American political activist and former president of The John Birch Society (JBS), a conservative advocacy organization. Known for his staunch anti-communist stance and promotion of conservative values, McManus has been a vocal critic of perceived threats to American sovereignty and individual liberties. Through his writings, speeches, and leadership role in the JBS, he has influenced conservative discourse on issues such as globalism, the United Nations, and the Federal Reserve. While his views have garnered support from some, they have also sparked controversy and criticism from those with differing perspectives.
No mention of negotiations with White House after Watergate
Dorothy Hunt, also known as Dorothy Lewis Hunt, was an American intelligence operative and a figure associated with the Watergate scandal. Born on February 15, 1924, she became the wife of E. Howard Hunt, a former CIA officer and Watergate conspirator. Dorothy Hunt played a role in her husband's activities related to the Watergate break-in and covert financing. Tragically, she died on December 8, 1972, in a plane crash under circumstances that raised suspicions of foul play. Her involvement in the Watergate scandal and her mysterious death have contributed to the intrigue surrounding this significant event in American history.
A reasonable five paragraphs on Britanica https://www.britannica.com/biography/Phyllis-Schlafly
Phyllis Schlafly was a leading anti-feminist and woman political activist associated with the John Birch Society. Born on August 15, 1924, in St. Louis, Missouri, Schlafly was a prominent conservative figure known for her opposition to the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) and her advocacy for traditional gender roles and values. She founded the organization Eagle Forum and dedicated much of her career to fighting against what she believed were the negative consequences of feminism. Schlafly's work and influence made her a significant voice in conservative politics, and her association with the John Birch Society aligned her with their broader conservative agenda. She passed away on September 5, 2016.
When Ducks attack and Wikipedia can't hunt;
I'm sorry, but I couldn't find any specific information about a term or concept called "duck attack" that is widely recognized or relevant. It's possible that it could be a term used in a specific context or by a specific group, but without further context, it's difficult to provide a specific answer. Could you please provide more details or clarify the context in which you heard or encountered the term "duck attack"?

It's possible that the person you're referring to is not widely recognized or may not have significant public visibility. If there is more context or details you can provide about Will Nicholes, I may be able to assist you further.
