I mean, can I copy part of the content and put it in a website?

Can questions be distributed or published?

The license is linked at the bottom of the page:


I'm guessing there is an assumption that all contributors agree to license their copyrights according to that license.

But I'm not sure where users specifically agree to it, and I don't recall clicking a license agreement.
