How easy is it to be nice

We are exploring options for a surf holiday in Papua New Guinea. I asked two surf camps a simple question about room and bed configurations. We wanted to be sure we had our privacy and were not sharing with another couple in the same bungalow. We are not kids in our twenties. We like our privacy.

Response #1.

‘Go to Bali.’ (No other words – no greeting, nothing!)

Response #2.

A lovely chat about the question, and then another response even after I said we had booked elsewhere. (Sri Lanka)

I already feel like a relationship has been established with the person behind response #2.

How easy is it to be nice? And what is the precessional effect?

We are now keen to go and meet the person behind the email.
