Okay, before I say anything, please note that it is very, very hard for me to say something in 4Kids' defense. I hate 4Kids as much as the next person. BUT, it's not only 4Kids we have to blame, you know. Dubbing companies have to get the creator's permission before purchasing and licensing a product, don't they? And who gave 4Kids permission to buy and ruin One Piece? Eiichiro Oda. So why, may I ask, doesn't anyone ever say anything about him? They always vent their anger out on 4Kids when they're only half to blame.
A lot of people try to defend Eiichiro Oda by saying that he didn't know what 4Kids were going to do. This is ridiculous. No one, I repeat, no one could be that stupid. Eiichiro Oda sold One Piece to 4Kids for money. And yet, no one ever shows any signs of anger towards this guy. Why? It's his fault, people.
(It was VERY hard for me to defend 4Kids like that, but Eiichiro Oda is also in the wrong. Remember that.)
