My understanding is that there is no real issue with what Simon posted but rather with parts of the comments by some individuals in the attached blog.

I don't post on Simon's blog because it is not really a blog but more an information website. If I want to post on an aviation blog I will do it here.

The question is whether if he stopped the reply channel we would still read his postings. I definitely would.

Indeed correct. But the avherald article was factually based on the BFU report, which was in turn based on the FDR data. When it comes to incident reports and safety, no airline has the right to protect the public from the truth.

Seems like everyone who's said the same has assumed the AvH report was an accurate representation of the BFU report. Did anyone check this, or did they just assume Ryanair was wrong? The BFU report is deceptively complex, and it takes a lot of reading to understand the detail.

interesting BBC panorama program last night about the Barclay Brothers (who own the Telegraph, the paper that exposed the MP expenses scandal) and their
indignation over press intrusion, defamation and indignation over it all..
BBC One - Panorama, The Tax Haven Twins
worth watching

they who dish out the dirt (or news, as it happens, which is of public interest) should be fully prepared (just like FR's MOL) to take some back...
