So long as the sample is clearly associated with a direct link to your source-page, sampling can be freely encouraged.
The test-question to ask is: if a person reads (views) the sampled content and likes it, is the link labelled clearly enough that they'll realise that following it will lead them to its actual source? (If yes, then no problem.)
Different authors will have different definitions of how big a sample is fair to use. I am experimentally taking the radical view, that a person can copy the whole page so long as it's clearly identified as such and clearly linked to the original.
Many other licenses require that content not be modified. I think this is unhelpful, but the test-question will again be: is the accompanying link labelled clearly enough that people will understand that following it will lead to the unmodified source (along with a general sense of the nature and extent of the modifications)?
It's likely that I've failed to spell out something that I meant to be included in this license, or overlooked something that I should have foreseen, which will require additions and modifications to it.
