STRICTLY PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL Re: Ryanairdontcarecrew.blogspot.com Dear Sirs, Ryanairdontcarecrew.blogspot.com (“Ryanairdontcare”) is an anti-Ryanair site, which promulgates false and defamatory statements about Ryanair’s aircraft safety, operating procedures and crew employment conditions, both directly and also through the libcom.org blog. We are extremely concerned that Google has recently promoted this misleading and defamatory site by giving it prominence on the Ryanair page on Google News. The Ryanairdontcare blog was established by Mr. John Foley. It is not the first blog Mr. Foley has had and in fact a similar abusive blog by Mr. Foley, located at a marginally different address, ryanairdontcare.blogspot.com, was closed down by Google on 13 May 2011. Mr. Foley also had a site at www.irishaviationauthority.com which has been suspended. Mr. Foley developed his misguided grudge against Ryanair when his daughter had her probationary employment terminated (by one of our contract agencies) in November 2008 following the first seven weeks of her probationary employment due to repeated absenteeism. Ever since Mr. Foley has pursued an increasingly erratic and dangerous campaign to publicly defame Ryanair. This campaign has included stunts such as unsafe trespass on the roof of Liverpool Airport, trespass across the track at Cheltenham race course in March 2011 (endangering himself, the horses and jockeys) and more recently handcuffing himself to the goalposts at an English Premiership match in Goodson Park. As a result of these extremely dangerous stunts the UK police and court services have issued Mr. Foley with an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (copy as posted on Mr. Foley’s blog available on request) which will be the subject of a court hearing on 24 April next. Ryanair has not taken legal action against Mr. Foley because he has no resources and it would only serve to give him more publicity for his senseless and defamatory campaign. Ryanairdontcare’s completely untrue claims, which mainly denigrate Ryanair’s aircraft safety, operating procedures and crew employment, also include allegations of suicide and depression among our employees.
Look at the part of the letter which said ''giving it prominence on the Ryanair page on Google News''.
