I was speaking in general terms - not just with regard modelling - I don't like it either, but we live in a materialistic world where money, the stuff it can buy and the aquisition of more wealth, are seen as the ultimate goals...

sometimes just saying 'no' is the best way.

This really goes both ways. I try to respond to everyone when I do a casting as well and a lot of times it can be tough to write to someone and say you just are not interesting in working with them.
Be polite, try and be forward. I think you get yourself in danger when you leave it too open and just say that you are busy at the moment.
What I like to see and how I generally respond.
-- Not for this project, but love the work and want to find something in the future
-- Not a good fit
I think it is also different if you are being contacted directly versus a casting availability.

That's very good. It's impersonal, the lack of interest could be for any reason, and there's no bullshit attached.

I agree with you to a point, but there does come a time when a model needs to protect their own brand and do their best to make sure only quality images of themselves exist out there. While it's easy enough to only publish their best work in their portfolios, the Internet, and social networking, does make it easy to find the other less than great images.

Personally I would rather be told no so I can move on - sometimes a photographer has a specific idea that your looks/body time/style would fit perfectly - and they have a really hard time letting go of the idea.
