Is it acceptable for someone to read a message and not reply because they were busy?
Like say you believe that they're out or whatever, but I figure if they have time to read it they have time to reply

Yes, it's fine.
What's annoying is seeing the message on your lock screen and having to avoid accidentally going into the message app and sending a read receipt in case someone insecure thinks you are ignoring them (because you are too busy to have a conversation)0
