Oxymoron, not a moron, thanks
I prefer a dub because then I can understand what is being said. Having subtitles is basically like reading, and there are multi-layered thresholds of understanding for what exactly is going on - there's taking in the dialogue, the emotion, and the action all at the same time through three different methods - text, voice, and image respectively.
Sure, most seiyu are better than their American counterparts, but I care more about being able to understand everything and having a flow. Plus, some of the dubs are actually quite good. Not all I'm saying. The 4Kids dub of Pokemon had great voice acting... but as has been said, their censorship was confounding to no end. It's really a mixed bag, and given the little anime I watch, I'd prefer to understand it so I can keep up with it.
