Ray McCadden gets his knickers in a twist

On 21 January 2013, shortly after the first 'Puppy Love Exposed' blog was taken down by Google, Dogs 4 Us owner Ray McCadden, who put seven of his previous companies in liquidation leaving debts of at least £1.96 million, filed a notice with Google complaining about posts on this site.

His claim was based on the following statement:

"Contains false and malicious claims in contravention of the defamation act 1996.
Evidence as follows the blog owner (Peter Gane) is intimationg that a blog called 'puppyloveexposed' (now removed by google) was the responsibility of my company Dogs 4 Us.
This is malicious and untrue as I or anybody associated with my company
have had nothing to do with the blog above.
It is defamatory to me and my business and potentially libellous."  

He continued: "Also under the 'Communications Act 2003 Section 127' 
Improper use of public electronic communications network
(1) A person is guilty of an offence if he—
(a) sends by means of a public electronic communications network a message
or other matter that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or
menacing character; or
(b) causes any such message or matter to be so sent.
(2) A person is guilty of an offence if, for the purpose of causing
annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another, he—
(a) sends by means of a public electronic communications network, a message that he knows to be false,
(b) causes such a message to be sent; or
(c) persistently makes use of a public electronic communications network.
(3) A person guilty of an offence under this section shall be liable, on
summary conviction, to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months or
to a fine not exceeding level 5 on the standard scale, or to both.
(4) Subsections (1) and (2) do not apply to anything done in the course of
providing a programme service (within the meaning of the Broadcasting Act
1990 (c. 42))."

Silly billy Raymond. A violation of the Communications Act 2003 Section 127 is a criminal offence. If you really believed you had a case, all you had to do was make a complaint to the police and get me banged up. For some reason you didn't choose to do that!

Needless to say, Google hasn't taken any posts down. Unfortunately, poor old Ray McCadden still seems to have difficulty distinguishing between fact and fiction.
