I'm in a hardcore raiding guild and I think our guild gets it backwards. We are incredibly tough on applicants but not on our regular members. Our focus is in the wrong place as we tend to look at dps and not enough on whether an applicants results is decent considering their experience (or look at their ability to learn from mistakes/ability to get along with other/etc). In other words, oftentimes we take the short cut route of judging the gear vs judging the player. 90% of our applications are denied and I have a feeling that many of the people we decline would be great guild members if given the opportunity. However, if we do accept a person into the guild I think they'd literally have to ninja loot the guild bank to get a kick. Over the past few years we have made a few bad choices but we've never actually benched anyone. It has held us back and I have a feeling over the next 6 months that expansion-itis is going to hit us hard and give everyone a good excuse to jump ship.
