My guild is kind of going through this as players, burnt out on the bang bang bang of incessant progression look to our casual approach and think,"I never just played the 'game'. These guys are having fun. I want to do that." They still have to go to the web site. They still have to sit through an interview. That's often where you'll catch someone. "I have to go to your web site? You don't just invite? But I have been places you haven't seen." They still have to go to the web site and read. I can't prove that they have, but if they balk at doing that, what else will they balk at? Don't relax standards to get some dude in T6. I would go so far as to find out if his guild did disband. I had one guy come to me claiming to just want to have fun and that his guild disbanded. When I asked the name of the guild, he didn't want to tell me then gave me some made up name. There is a way to track characters and my membership coordinator found his former guild was still alive and kicking and he was one they had kicked, for openly yelling at the GL in a raid. While the temptation is huge to add these strays to your fold, I think you do your guild and yourself a huge favor by running everyone through the process you have established. If it has served you so far, it will continue to serve you and you'll weed out those who won't be a good fit for your guild.
