Default A question about Articles

I wanted to post an articles because it's about ATT and googlefiber but was not allowed to which is a shame considering the last articles there were 3 and 4 years old. Not exactly news. Is this site dying off and why would it be opposed to someone wanting to breath new life into it?
I posted it in off topic anyways.

Default Re: A question about Articles

If I recall correctly, there is a place called member submissions,

You write your article there and then it gets moved to the right section.
Assimg it's an article about computers or a tutorial related to computers.

exactly that, the articles should be original material.

Other peoples articles would be covered by copyright law, copy pasting them here would be unfair, and unlawful.

Yep, that would be plagiarism.

I think we can cite passages as long we give credit to where it came from.
