I appreciate your "once bitten twice shy" stance, having been in it myself more than once.
There has been a lot of controversy on the web about whether or not I (or the others, either) are "real" judges. Most of this comes about because people are ignorant about what a "judge" is and the jurisdictions and venues of the law generally.
What we have operating in the courthouses around this country are all administrative and/or admiralty courts. This is because the organizations operating the functions of our states and counties decided to incorporate themselves back in the 1950's and 60's as franchises of the federal government, so that they could partake in federal revenue sharing.
