The American Community Survey

Has anyone ignored this without being harassed afterward? Is there no way to get a ruling from a court that it's unconstitutional?

I filled out the online survey and on the questions that are too intrusive I wrote "I Decline to Answer", as instructed by a US Census operator. But they're sending field representatives to my house saying it's incomplete, even though the online survey said "Thanks for Completing the Survey".

I've not been contacted, but, on my 2010 census return, I declined to give my race, on grounds of Constitutional irrelevancy with regard to Congressional apportionment (as even the "three-fifths of a man" clause applies only to slaves, and not to "Free Persons of Color").  They sent me a second return, with a letter that told me I hadn't returned the first one, but I've heard nothing from them since.
