(9) Inmates shall not use correspondence privileges to solicit or otherwise commercially advertise for money, goods, or services. For the purposes of this rule this includes advertising for pen-pals; inmates are not prohibited from corresponding with pen pals, but shall not place ads soliciting pen pals. Inmates who post ads or have ads posted with the assistance of another person shall be subject to disciplinary action. If an inmate alleges that an ad was posted without his assistance or permission or that the ad was placed before the restriction on soliciting pen-pals became effective, it is the responsibility of the inmate to request that the ad be removed by submitting a written request to the owner, operator, or administrator of the forum in which the ad is located if it is reasonably possible for the Department to identify the physical address of such entity. No inmate shall be subject to discipline if the ad is not removed subsequent to submission of the written request. If it is not reasonably possible for the Department to identify the physical address of the owner, operator, or administrator of the forum in which the ad is located, the inmate must submit Form DC6-236, Inmate Request, to the warden indicating that the ad was placed without the inmate’s knowledge or consent or that it was placed prior to the restriction on solicitation of pen-pals. The inmate shall be subject to disciplinary action only if it is discovered that the inmate solicited the ad and
or that it was placed subsequent to the restriction on solicitation of pen-pals.
