For me, this is probably going to be an unpopular choice, but I'd have to go with Elektra King. And the reason is because I'm VERY anti pipeline and dislike oil mongers. I've signed countless petitions to ban pipelines and to invest in regenerative energy. So to me, the conflict of The World is Not Enough is just as personal to me as it is to Bond, albeit in a different way, and just one of the many reasons it's my favorite film in the series.
Enough about me though, who do you find to be the biggest hate sink?

Is he just some kind of womanizing horndog?
Not even James Bond is "allowed" to be a womaniser. As if that's not bad enough, apparently hot women aren't even allowed to exist anymore.
Hollywood has been hijacked by puritanical nut jobs.
It has long been public knowledge that SPECTRE was at one time funded by Red China (when they carried out their operation to capture American and Soviet astronauts in orbit in order to provoke a war between these 2 countries); however, I've recently come across some information which suggests there might have been other countries involved with SPECTRE as well. Specifically, I've found out that Albania's Stalinist government broke with the USSR in the second half of the 1950s (at about the same time when SPECTRE itself went rogue and started fighting against both the USSR and the West, give or take a couple years) and subsequently made common cause with China, which suggests they might have allied with SPECTRE as well -- and also, the last couple years of Blofeld's tenure as SPECTRE Number One (before Bond dropped him to his death down a factory smokestack), Iran had gone anti-American while remaining anti-Soviet (and later also started a campaign of state-sponsored terrorism against both, although that would be in the last 3-4 months or so of the short-lived tenure of Nena Bismaquer and then in the Tamil Rahani era), which gives them a possible motive to support SPECTRE as well! What do y'all think?

James Bond was not "buried" at sea of Hong Kong it was filmed of Gibraltar.
I've just recently come across 2 historical documents: one is from the MI6 archives, was declassified a few years ago, is about as big as a small town's phone book, is dated 1960 (with a great many addendums over the years, the most recent ones being dated 2007), and looks like the complete training curriculum for the 00 Section; the other is from the KGB archives (apparently someone forgot to shred it), dates back apparently to the late 1940s, consists of 10 letters in Russian, and appears to be correspondence between Blofeld and then-head of the KGB Lavrenty Beria (the acronym SPEKTR appears in those letters quite a few times -- I think it might actually mean SPECTRE -- as do several familiar names such as Emilio Largo, Tov Kronsteen, Fiona Volpe, Anton Morzeny, Dr. Julius No, Rosa Klebb and Le Chiffre). But I want to ask all your opinions, do you think these documents are legit, or might they have been cleverly fabricated for the purpose of disinformation?
I calculated how long the James Bond movies of each actor are in total and i combined the total. The movies with Sean Connery are 11 hours, 42 minutes and 37 seconds long, On Her Majesty's Secret Service is 2 hours, 22 minutes and 19 seconds long, the movies with Roger Moore are 14 hours, 49 minutes and 13 seconds long, the movies with Timothy Dalton are 4 hours, 24 minutes and 16 seconds long, the movies with Pierce Brosnan are 8 hours, 30 minutes and 12 seconds long and the movies with Daniel Craig are 9 hours, 2 minutes and 5 seconds long
11:42:37 (Sean Connery) + 2:22:19 (On Her Majesty's Secret Service) = 14:04:56
14:04:56 (Sean Connery and On Her Majesty's Secret Service) + 14:49:13 (Roger Moore movies) = 1:04:54:09
1:04:54:09 (Sean Connery, On Her Majesty's Secret Service and Roger Moore) + 4:24:16 (Timothy Dalton) = 1:09:18:25
1:09:18:25 (Sean Connery, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Roger Moore and Timothy Dalton) + 8:30:12 (Pierce Brosnan) = 1:17:48:37
1:17:48:37 (Sean Connery, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan) + 9:02:05 (Daniel Craig) = 2:02:50:42
What was the real name of M #3 -- was it Barbara Mawdsley or Olivia Mansfield? I've seen sources for both these names (and the movies don't mention it, in fact in Casino Royale she warns Bond not to mention her name), so which one is correct?
