Quote post or link post with blockquote?

Which to choose when posting a link with a quote? Here are my personal guidelines, which may help you codify yours:

Link post with blockquote for any of these conditions: - I have commentary I’d like to add
- I think the entire article is worth reading
- The quote doesn’t represent the entire article
- The quote is especially long
- There are too many good quotes and I can’t pick one

Quote post for shorter quotes that stand alone, especially if the quote is a good enough substitute for the article that you don’t need to read the whole thing.
