Have you ever rejected an investment for your startup? Why?

I was clicking around and read an anonymous post on another site by an entrepreneur who said he turned down an angel who basically wanted full control of the company and total ownership. Obvious red flag. I was hoping to hear other stories here about rejecting investments for your startup and why you chose to do so. Did it lead to a more favorable investment from the same investor or someone else?

Yes, the investor wanted more than I was offering and insisted.
