Ryanair - nagging before boarding

Ryanair has low air fare, but low price depends on you follow their instructions . Photo: Arpingstone
I have just returned from Paris after a flight with Ryanair. The reason why I avoid this air carrier is their rules of luggage and their chaotic system of rules and fees as penalties for non-compliance . One example is this mail I recieved before boarding my flight to Beauvais Tillé airport, July 7th 2012. 
Confirmed Reservation Number: WHIMXT
Flight FR 9613 From: Rygge-Moss To: Paris Beauvais on lø 07/juli/2012  departing at 06:45  arriving at
