Share It How, You Say?

Some things strike me funny…such as this notice that was placed at the end of an article I read a few minutes ago.

Perhaps I am missing something, but how can I “share this story” if I don’t publish, broadcast, rewrite or redistribute it? Huh?

I’m can’t think of a way to entice someone to read the original article without “rewriting” something in the story that caught my attention. By sending the article’s name to Digg, am I not on a small scale broadcasting that news? Am I not publishing a part of the story? Am I not trying to redistribute it?
