Is reconnecting with casual dates/flings ever a good idea?

Been getting a surprising number of reconnection attempts this weekend from people I went on a few dates with in the last year. I wasn't interested in reconnecting with any of them and didn't respond. Conversely, in the last few months I've reached out to a few people with reconnection attempts and received no response.
There are definitely people from my past that I'd like to see again, but if it was a good idea to get in touch with them now, we probably wouldn't have been avoiding each other in the meantime, right?
So: is reconnecting with these kinds of people ever a good idea? If so, how should one go about it? When you're not interested, how should you respond?
