Go to the original source. If HotMess.Blog posts a short blurb about an article from a newspaper, post the original article, not the blog blurb. I hate that. We all hate that.

True! And the same thing if the Ass. Press has an article from a local source - then you might be better ahead to go to that local source and post from there.

Another annoyance is linking to the home page of a blog or news source instead of the actual article. A link to a home page will break the next time the blogger posts or the news source goes to a new lead story. Instead, one should click through to the article by itself and then link to that page. Or look around for a an explicitly labeled permalink and copy its target URL.
 
Way true! It burns me up to see some moron post an article he found on Fox News and post the link as http://www.foxnews.com/

True, but that seems not to be the case for a majority of blogs...

Often the same article will be posted by ten different sources with ten different titles.

Same AP article published by all those different flavors of newspaper.

If posters are concientious about using and searching for the exact title that will cut down on the duplicates, but sometimes a duplicate just means people who missed the first post will see the second.
