That reads as ...

I'm sorry, but I have huge patience for recruiters wanting to become more
closely involved with the open source communities in London for mutual
benefit, and I also don't fully agree with GLLUG's policies on
recruitment posts, but even from this tolerant point of view, can I
just say I have never read such a pile of bullshit in terms of
recruitment on an open source list.

It's exactly this sort of crap that leads open source lists to be so
wary of recruiters.

(Apologies to the list for just reiterating what Jason, Martin and Nix
 have already stated.)
