    I started with a post office box, but it got old quick having to go elsewhere to pick up my mail. I gave it up after a couple months and now use my own address. I write to two people.

    If I were an inmate, I wouldn't write someone back if it became apparent they were only wanting to correspond to further their own interests, which is what study correspondence essentially is. Totally agree with the second part of what you wrote.

    I'm sure some of them don't mind, possibly feeds their ego to be a point of interest for their crimes, but I wouldn't want to be part of that.

    @ShadeyBiz89: Seems you fully agree with what I wrote.
    My remark about "study objects" came because of Izzy saying she was studying sth. in the legal.
    Thus it appeared to me (and I'm not saying that is like that, I just say that is how it looks to me) that her interest in writing some "notorious" inmates might come from there.
    And writing to people I consider "real creeps" - well, for me it's no- no.
    I'm not searching for a relationship of the romantical kind, but how on Earth shall I become someone's "pal" if I consider him being "creeps". Perhaps my English is not good enough, but to me that just sounds confusing.
    I mean, I don't have to like what somebody did, but shouldn't I at least be able to find sth. in their profile that I can relate to? Sth. as a starting point? Sth. more than merely being a human being on this planet as well?
    Ahem... guess that pretty much goes into the same direction Gooddog was aiming for in his earlier post.

    Hello,
    I just couldn?t handle it thinking of a horrible crime the person committed.

    I couldn?t appreciate anything he?d send me or nice things he?d write bc that crime would be overpowering all.
    And I couldn?t be there emotionally for someone I can?t understand or vibe with and don?t know how to vibe with someone with a heinous crime in the backyard.
    So I don?t see reason for me personally but I?m sure there?s reasons for others.
    Regards
