I completely agree.

Also, I think it was supposed to be that way. Readers were meant to make assumptions about Slytherins, so that the developments with Draco and Snape would have more of an impact. And it was written from Harry's point of view and from what he saw of Slytherins, they weren't very nice. Plus, they already had a bad reputation. That would make it more difficult for them to associate with other houses if so many others were biased.
