Like I said it's about personality. Spidey being a hardluck hero who can't catch a break and Logan being a borderline psycho/misanthrope.
Logan being borderline psycho is enough to keep him out of the Avengers for you.

Yet Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and all are well-adjusted enough to stick around? Yeah, because the Hulk is SO much more predictable and easy to control than Logan.

"No more mutants" is a bit more than borderline psycho as well, if you ask me.

It's funny to see the hypocritical justifications for keeping Spider-Man and Wolverine away from the team. Spider-Man, who you can trust more than anybody to do the right thing, will put his everything into doing what's right, and will more times than not succeed, yet he doesn't belong? Crazy.
Yes they were, because they weren't actual psychos or villains when they joined. They were pawns, used by Magneto and the Black Widow respectively, to further their agendas. They each proved their worth and reformation time and time again. Pietro and Clint were hot heads, but never psycho. Wanda was never presented as a psycho for most of her stint either. She was often the heart and soul of the team.

The Hulk lasted for what, two issues and a half? Most of that time the Avengers were fighting him. He's never really been a member of long standing.

Not a fan of "no more mutants". Seemed out of character for Wanda.

As tighr said, these aren't real people. Spider-Man and Wolverine are in the Avengers because they help sell comics not because they've "earned it" or "deserve it"

Yes, I'm a bit old school when it comes to these characters. Spider-man without the "Parker luck" becomes just another wisecracking superhero. Wolverine needs to be a guy on the edge, who keeps that dark part of himself under control, never knowing when that control will falter.
