You might want to use quotation marks to indicate what is quoted from another author's work, otherwise, to some people, it simply looks like something you may have typed.

Additionally, including a link to the original article, like this, or the link below, would have been helpful.

Lastly, adding something like "Emphasis added by me" where you changed a sentence to all caps, which was not not how it was written in the article, would have been more intellectually honest.

Did I think you plagiarized it? Nope. Your subject line let me know that.

But do I think you did a sloppy job by not indicating where you were quoting, and by altering (via using all caps) the original article? I'm afraid I do.
