I agree with everything you said, CleaningUp. My issue is with Clydes always telling new people that they are wrong or are "violating court rules", when they are actually doing quite the opposite.
Just because a court may not follow it's own rules does not mean that one of us should also just throw our hands up and try to play the game their way. We still have to play it the correct way, with the rules as written. If that results in the courts or other side rolling over us because we are eating into their time together at the pub or the greens, then so be it.
GA does have de novo appeals for Magistrate cases.
I feel it does a dis-service to people coming here looking for help with their cases, most being their first time ever having to go to a court at all, and Clydes is here causing them to panic and worry even more by giving them incorrect information and using every scare tactic in the book.
Most people here give great critical feedback to help people. That feedback is usually always based in facts, with laws, rules and cases to show the poster why they are doing something wrong. But when someone is actually following the rules and going something right, Clydes tells them they are "violating court rules" simply because she doesn't like what they are doing.
