Why when I post a Wiki site I get ( for example) this,
1. I post Pascal’s wager ( Wiki)
2. I get this
3. “Wikipedia does not have an article with this exact name. Please search for Pascal's Wager. in Wikipedia to check for alternative titles or spellings.
Search for "Pascal's Wager." in existing articles.
4. I click “Search for "Pascal's Wager." in existing articles.”
5. I get this, at the top
Pascal's Wager
Pascal's Wager (also known as Pascal's Gambit) is an argument in apologetic philosophy which was devised by the seventeenth-century French...
6. I click that and finally the actual site appears!

You have a funky apostrophe in your original post (rather than the usual ' character,) that might be it. Wikipedia requires an exact match (including case sensitivity) though it will usually redirect searches that are "close enough". If I put "Pascal's wager" (with a normal apostrophe) into the Wikipedia search box, it sends me to the proper page (Pascal's Wager)

To get it to show up properly in ATS, you need to put the link in a "URL", you can't just paste it directly into your post, because the apostrophe (regular or not) breaks the ATS parser.
