Thumbs down Is A Lack Of Information A Red Flag?


I ask this question knowing that certain things turn people off from contacting someone.

If an inmate is listed on a site that doesn't include info on why they're inside, and no info turns up in a search, is that any sort of red flag?

Thank you.

I've never written a complete stranger, so this is purely my opinion based on how I would feel if I were incarcerated. I would want someone to get to know me separate from why I was incarcerated. I, personally, would not see it as a red flag if an inmate did not disclose their crime(s) in an ad.

As for nothing coming up in a search, how thorough of a search did you perform? Did you simply type their name into Google? Nothing comes up if I search my ex's name in Google, but plenty shows up if I search our state's courtsystem online database.

Maybe your best bet is to find a pen pal on here instead of pen pal sites. Someone's child, sibling, etc may like a friend to write back and forth.

So... based on the fact that your entire posting history revolves around your apprehension about writing to an inmate... have you maybe considered another hobby?

There are lots other marginalized groups that would welcome your attention and might not cause you quite as much anxiety.
