"All positions are full and we're not taking any new members right now" is a perfectly businesslike answer. Don't be shy about giving it. I'd feel concerned if a GL wasn't willing to say no; it's easy to misinterpret as a sign of a wishy-washy leader with low standards.

Except that's not the case at all. He wants to be able to take new members he likes, keep out the ones he doesn't, and not step on anyone's toes in the process. An answer like that is a blatant lie.To CGL, you're going to end up hurting feelings no matter how diplomatically you reject people. If you want to appease your guildies whose friends you're rejecting though, you could make a trial rank or a Friends and Family rank, and stick the new people in there. And then whenever you have officer meetings, promote or kick the people who don't fit with a clear reason why. If you really, really just do not want to invite these people for whatever reason, just say so and be prepared for your guildies to be upset. If you don't already have some kind of criteria for joining, now is a good time to set some up.
