    Yes, I've often posted links and the article disappears or changes, and it's a dead link. Giving partial portions of the content often results in people commenting on that partial text instead of the full text on the site and they miss the point of the article and go off on a tangent - then I have to waste time steering them back to the article to get the whole story, and often they don't and just go on and on about nothing.

    I find posting the whole article, with the opening paragraphs in the clear to get their interest, and putting the bulk of the article in spoiler quotes, works best.

    Now that @Dr. AMK knows how to do spoilers, he can cut down the length of the posts by putting the bulk of the article, images, charts, etc, in spoiler brackets. :)
