Some more items to consider:
- Do not excerpt an article unless necessary. Some times the article gets pulled off the original site and the post here on FR is the only copy.
- If possible, link to the "printer friendly" version of the article. Those of us stuck in 56K dialup HELL appreciate this as the printer friendly version is usually not as graphic intense.

I too, like seeing entire articles on FR, especially if the newspaper site requires registration to read the whole article.
I have heard, from writers that I respect, that by posting an entire column we deprive them of a hit on their site. Sometimes, when legacy media is anticipating job cuts, the number of hits determines who goes and who stays on the payroll.
