No offense, just what's the point of your constant bitching?  Your *%#$# reminds me of Barret in FF VII :)
We all do our shares of both buying and d/ling.  If you're such and advocate and have no zero tolerance for "no stealing", then on today forth, stop your d/ls of any sort, don't want anything that you didn't pay for, and don't watch any new show until its North American release which is 3 yrs from now, or not at all.  Watch DVDs and listen to the English track only, then you'd be happy right?
Dub vs. sub is moot nowadays, just give us both if the media holding the contents has the capacity.
Different people have their preference.  For me, I simply want to watch something in the language where the entertainment is originated from, understand Jpn aside, which I do.
Sure, dub has its contribution, and Pokemon was kid friendly, but no, I don't want to listen to DBZ dubbed in English again, ever.
