The Fair Use clause does not entitle someone to post a copyrighted article in its entirety.

 even half the article would be questionable .

most times it just a  sentance or two.

What about using it like a research paper does instead? Paraphrase from it and quote it. Just don't forget to give the credit to the source and provide a work cited link. I think then you are at least attempting to not plagiarize another's work. I'm not saying go full MLA or APA style but just give credit to the individual and cite where the full article can be found. I agree that we shouldn't copy and paste the whole thing, but making references to it while citing the source should fall into the fair use clause, right?

A paragraph and a link to the article is sufficient.

As a writer and literary agent, I can tell you: CC speaks truth.  ::nodding::

How does posting a link square with the TOS 3.4 where it says if you post a link the target needs a link back to here?

Not exactly true.

One can indeed post such an article if;
- Credit for its creation and/or publication is given to author and publisher
- written permission is obtained by the poster (who is asked to give credit where its due)
- If the aforementioned information is in the public domain or if the copyright has lapsed.
- If the article is reworded or rewritten in such a way that it no longer resembles the original.
- Ideas are not subject to copyright - only the words that describe the aforementioned ideas. (One cannot copy/paste, but one can steal liberally.  News organizations do it all the time.  I know.  I used to work for one.)
- Nobody catches you doing it.

Finally, copyright violations are often conducted by businesses for the purpose of monetary extraction.   I have personally had a novel stolen by a large corporation.   Lawyers who specialize in copyright infringement litigation charge five hundred dollars an hour for their expertise.   How do I know?  I know by painful experience.   A struggling author can't afford that kind of protection.   Hollywood studios can.  Big standard publishers can.  I can't.  Can you?

Nobody cares about the law any more.   

Is this a great country or what?

that's me, hollering from the choir loft...
