cardboard and newspaper-safe to compost?

I have read several posts that newsprint, being made of soy, is now safe to print.

One post led me to this article which states that newspapers and cardboard are not desireable in compost piles.

What of this?

As long as we're on the topic, what of xeroxed paper, laser and inkjet inks. Are these nasty? Are there any chemists in this forum who could respond?

Thank you.
