My theory is that they employ the world's most sexually repressed/frustrated soccer mom to screen for any unacceptable content.

I think we had a thread like this one time. Here's something from the thread called "Prank Note"

Hi, I'm Gary Light, and someday I'm going to be the biggest practical joker in Japan. Good thing I found the "Prank Note". Now, with the help of my magical friend Ryan that only I can see, I can play jokes on everyone in New York, and I don't even have to be in the same room! Too bad Larry is always trying to snitch on me to my dad, what a tattletale! I even have my friend Lisa to help me out. She's okay, for a girl anyway. So watch me and my friends as we have fun learning, laughing, and growing up, on "Prank Note". This fall on 4Kids.

This is actually true. Like most companies in the US, people are expected to work during their work hours. If they do not have any more work to do, then there's no leaving early or anything, so they find more work to do.

It's 4kids policy to remove text. They think kids don't like words/reading, so they remove it if they can.

There's gotta be another explanation for the text thing, it just doesn't make sense...

Maybe the animation studio ships out some sort of "international edition" with no text to distributors in other countries, so they can add their own?

As far as the pokemon edits go: wut

Simple explanation: They're paid by how much work they have to do. (Maybe?) And Pokemon is mostly a childsafe show already.
>>
>>11342288
My guess? Typically, the translation studios are broken up into the people who actually remove the text (i.e. people who go frame-by-frame or whatever) and those who do actual translation, then those who replace text (like put stuff back on signs). I imagine that the Pokemon team removes stuff with the full intention of "translating" it (or, rather, they just remove it under the general rubric that "everything semi-text-like should be removed"), and then they don't bother doing the extra work to add it back.

Some of these edits are clearly done to avoid controversy, though, which is ridiculous. Fuck Christfags- I was part of that, I know how they act, and trust me, they won't be buying your shit anyway. don't cater to the pissed off soccer moms of the world.
