That depends on the job-market. Over here, there's a lack of suitable candidates, thus rejecting candidates who would've been a good, or even a reasonable fit, can be a pretty big deal.
Even if the job market is tough it's still much better to reject good candidate and leave your team understaffed rather then to give to them someone who'll drag them back.
Sure, hiring a entirely hopeless case is probably going to be worse, but most of the time we hire people on a 6-month probation-period, so the downside is somewhat limited.
Bad candidate left unsupervised can create a lot of problems for your company in the future in one day (how much time is needed to create the abomination we discuss here?) and if you constantly supervise him (or her) in these 6 months then you are effectively interviewing him (or her) for the duration of these 6 months. Do you really think it's sensible approach to spend valuable time of senior engineers for this constant interviewing when they could do 5-10 simple interviews in that time instead? Or do you live in the area where you can not find even 10 candidates in 6 months? In this case perhaps it's better to move your operations in other place or at least try to understand why candidates avoid your particular company specifically.
