My hope,

Obvious corporate letters, No.
Personal Letters, Yes
Postcards are personal letters. :)
Before this, there was a typo.

Since I installed Ad Block Plus, I don't see any Youtube ads anymore, which is really nice. But I do support eevblog with a small monthly Paypal donation (and I do this often for other projects as well, if they are interesting for me and if they have a donation button), so I don't have a bad conscience not watching the ads :)

You can select adblock Plus to not block ads on eevblog's youtube IIRC.  Hell, if I like a video, I'll click on an ad just to see what it is.  ;)  That makes me happy, and Dave happy.  And I'd say all is right with the world.   O0

I'm not personally that interested in the content of the letters; however people who send stuff in take the time and effort to not only send things, but also to write a letter and I think it's nice that they get to hear them read out on in the videos (and I'm glad Dave seems to have as much trouble falling over words, when reading out loud, as I do).  It doesn't kill me to listen to a letter being read out, it's not like it's every single video Dave puts up.
I write software.  I'd far rather be doing something else.

Perhaps Dave could put annotation links to the item opening video time during the letter reading parts of the video to skip ahead.
