Then you should be taking your anger out on the companies that charge $30 - $50 for an hour of programming, which could instead be spent on games that could last for a week or even a month at the same price. Not rubbing your money in our faces, and teasing us. There are fucking people on EF that are about to lose their homes, how do you think that makes them feel?

Plus, your definition of thievery is "watching TV." You clearly have zero understanding of reality, let alone economics.

Here's how it works. For unlicensed shows: Anime is made in Japan. It's then broadcast on the TV there, and subtitled by someone who desires no money for their service. It is then transmitted on the internet to households in America, who get off scott free because there is no alternative to this distribution.

Or, the licensed shows. Anime is made in Japan. It's picked up by a company whose purpose is to dub and distribute the good in America. The company subsequently fails in both departments, giving us poor voice acting and outrageous prices. People are unwilling to pay the price the company desires in large scales, so they go to the alternative of watching the internet-broadcast Japanese versions of the shows, which are both cheaper and of higher quality. Anime company complains that people are pirating their product, and ignores their own failings, and arrogant pricks complain on the internet about how they're the only ones paying for an unaffordable, low quality product, while sending a signal to the companies that they are doing a good job.

If they wanted to do something other than complain and go bankrupt, there are very clear alternatives.
Mark the price of the anime down to $5 - $10, allowing more people to be able to buy the product, of which the actual production cost of each unit is probably pennies.
Stop giving us low quality products, so that people actually have a reason to buy it.
Stop releasing Fruits Basket and Gundam clones so that the product is actually worth selling.
Set up a way for people to watch the shows online, let the ad revenue pay the cost of licensing and property rights, and get your asses into the 21st century.
Stop dubbing the shows altogether to save money.
If you are going to dub shows, don't give us any more Narutos or Higurashis where your IQ or ear respectively is damaged from hearing the voice actors.
Hire translators, and stop shitting out your scripts and loading them to the breaking point with cliches, Ranma.
Provide something that online subbers can't.

It is not our fault that the producer is fucking up, but rather the fault of those who actually buy the overpiced, low quality DVDs.

And please do give an example of me being a snob, while you're the one bragging about how you spent more money than all of EF has combined on TV shows that last a half hour a piece.
