Because reaching your customers directly is hard. If it was easy, nobody would sign up for these services. Its especially hard for a small business like these- you expect them not only to be master craftsmen, but master marketers, master SEOs, and master businessmen as well? And do all of it in the span of a working day? Not exactly realistic. Now alternatives competing on margin- that can and will happen. Amazon isn't even the first here. Some of them, like ANgie's list, are paid for by monthly subscriptions.

If they are open to the general public it ain't so clean cut.

Your home, yes. No questions about it. If you don't want any gays, Jews, blacks or Christians in your home, there's nothing anyone could say. I'd still consider you an asshole for discriminating people for something they have little control over (well, except the Christian maybe), but it's your private space and it should be your prerogative to decide who may and may not enter it.

It's different if we're dealing with a place that can (and by its very definition and the general idea behind it should) be frequented by visitors and other strangers you have no direct connection to, i.e. a business. What do you think would happen if someone made a "White only" restaurant? Or how about "Muslim only"? Think that would sit well?

Why? Why do they have "the right not to be mocked"? Does that idiot that searches corn circles while wearing a tinfoil hat so he won't be controlled by the Illuminati have the right not to be mocked?

I'm forced to live among people who have imaginary friends, and not only that, they let their imaginary friend dictate what they can do and who they may speak with! Where's my right to be left alone by those loonies?

After any salary raise, you will have less money at the end of the month than you did before.
