rabble.ca gets a lot of article submissions, way more than we can accept. Which is too bad, because often they are very good.

So, we decided to create a forum on babble for anyone who is interested in posting their own short news or opinion pieces here.

Please note that any piece posted here needs to correspond with the babble policy statement.

All pieces posted here must be ORIGINAL and by the person posting it. No reposting articles from other publications - that's what the other forums on babble are for.

Also: because these articles do not go through an editorial process where sources are checked and approved before posting, rabble.ca can not allow potentially libelous allegations to be made in these articles. All claims made in articles should be sourced through links within the article or in endnotes.

So, set up your soapboxes and let's hear it!

Original news?

I'm not quite getting the concept.

It reminds me of the classic generic short book review:

"Much in this book is new, and much is true. However, the true bits are not new, and the new bits are not true."

Well, if I'd said that people can only post "original news" here, then I could understand why you were having trouble with the concept. But what I actually posted was that people should only post original articles or original pieces here. I'm pretty sure you understood what I meant though, yes?
