Does anyone know how weird Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport is?

Does anyone know how weird Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson is? I mean I collected my bag, went through passport control, got my bag, and went through the customs thing. THEN I had to recheck my bag, get myself scanned and my carry-on x-rayed, get on a train, and wait 20mins for my bag to be delivered to me a second time.

Looking back, I can see why they do it. For people to get out of the airport they have to pass through places that give them access to other terminals, but all that means is that they've structured the whole airport badly. I wouldn't mind, but Hartsfield-Jackson is the main hub for America's largest airline (Delta).
