This is the 'About' section held on the previous domain and software, edited only to remove sections which are no longer relevant to the site as it currently stands today. Emphasis by way of pretty coloured text has been placed on some of the more pertinent aspects of the section.

League of Reason, established 2009, is a multi-author blog written by a collection of highly motivated people, and a community forum. We do not represent each other or any kind of organisation. We just happen to come to the same place, where we represent ourselves, and if we disagree with each other we’re not afraid to say so.

League of Reason is not a think-tank, advocacy group or corporation. What is consensus among its members is always subject to change, and there is no established policy. The only collective belief of its team is that if constructive debate is allowed to progress, better ideas will ultimately supplant worse ideas.

Initially, the site was set up as a discussion forum to combat a plague of censorship against proponents of science and skepticism, orchestrated by a number of religious YouTube users. Their tactics included the employment of votebots (software designed to autonomously lower the ratings of videos) and the filing of false DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) claims in an effort to have critical material removed from the site.

The forum proved to be a successful and popular resource, not only for fighting censorship, but also for the discussion of a wide variety of topics. It flourished into a strong community for like-minded people all over the world.

Today our community continues to grow and diversify, as does our excellent team of committed and responsible contributors. What began as an outpost for victims of YouTube censorship is now a popular meeting place for discussion and commentary on every topic imaginable!

Most of us in this world think our ideas are the reasonable ones so it is NOT for the administrators or moderators of this community to dictate any policy on what its members must believe or agree on
. Anyone can be a member of League of Reason by signing up on the forums. All we ask is that you obey the rules in forums and chat, which are put in place to prevent chaos, not to stifle discussion. You are also welcome to suggest changes to the rules which will be reviewed by the team of moderators whose job it will be to enforce them. Remember, if you wish to convince other members that your ideas are the reasonable ones, you will almost certainly be expected to justify your claims!
