Dear Oscar’
I have no problem with the way that you use the <article> element – but I am concerned about the way you use the list <li> element. 
In HTML the <li> element defines an item within a list of associated objects such as book titles. If I send you a list of the books I read last year you would not expect to receive the actual books !!
Similarly you would not expect to find a heading <h3> within the list as this implies a change of topic.
Regards
Richard

Subject: Usage of Articles

Hi all

Just wondering. Am I over using/overkilling the poor ARTICLE tag by doing this:

<h3>My list of stuff</h3>
<ul class="news-list">
                        <li>
                            <article>
                                <time class="date" datetime="2014-06-19">19/06/2014</time>
                                <h3>
                                    <a href=“#">
                                        Bla bla
                                    </a>
                                </h3>
                            </article>
                        </li>
                        <li>
                            <article>
                                <time class="date" datetime="2014-03-27">27/03/2014</time>
                                <h3>
                                    <a href=“#">
