    but are you quoting too much of the article?

    I really appreciate the link, I just don't want this to get pulled.

      After a few minutes rooting around in the DKos knowledge base and user-help discussions, the only thing I've found is one DKos link here (scroll down) to the Wikipedia article on fair use.

      According to Wiki, "fair use" considers a number of factors. I believe the factors "purpose and character" and "effect upon work's value" especially weigh in favor of my use. By not embedding any of Fallows's internal links--which are the heart of his piece--I'm actually driving traffic to Fallows's piece. My piece effectively serves as advertisement for Fallows's.

      So while I appreciate the heads-up, I think I'm OK.

      If there's something more specific in the DKos rules, I'd appreciate somebody cluing me in.
