If I link to this entry on Facebook, the link displays a nice excerpt from the post.
If I link to this entry on another site, then it just displays the ugly stuff below the comment box about “You may use these HTML tags and attributes:” etc. It doesn’t even display anything from the entry body.
At first I thought it might be because the first site uses a great theme that generates meta description tags based on the entry, but I installed a plugin on the second site to manually generate a meta description tag, and it didn’t seem to change what gets displayed when linked.
