Is it just me, or can manners be lacking on both sides?

I submitted my information to a very well reviewed, very well regarded provider to be screened.  Over a month passed, so I followed up with this person.  No reply.  Several more reviews popped up.  I was a little confused since I had all the required information, good references, and was very respectful and very polite in both the initial and follow up e-mails.  Still nothing.  Then I realized this provider had asked for ethnicity on their screening form.

Now let me be clear, I'm not here to start a firestorm about ethnicity/race - not by any means at all.  I believe - and this is just my own humble opinion - that people are entitled to their preferences, and I respect and understand that.  But I guess what kinda hurt my feelings was that this person declined to simply reply with something along the lines of "I prefer not to see you."  That's really all I was looking for.  Simple, effective, provides closure and we can all go on our merry way.

Anyone else noticing that people - and I realize it works on both the provider and hobbyist ends - are losing common courtesy?  Thanks for letting me rant/vent.  I'm curious to hear your thoughts.
