I hate to be mean... I was an English as a Second Language teacher and am very adept at figuring out the meaning of fractured English. But this thread has me totally stumped. Wow.

If the issue is the content of the message,,,,,seems to me it's fairly straightforward....

My translation: Kings Dominion (amusement park) rides is (are?) not for sissies. There (their) rides are bigger than Busch Gardens. The Intimidator 305 (roller coaster) is 95 feet bigger (longer/higher) than Applos (Appollo's?) Chariout (Chariot? roller coaster at Busch Gardens) and the Dominator (roller coaster at King's Dominion) is double the length of the Griffon (coaster at Busch Gardens) and double the fun. King's Dominion is way better than Busch Gardens.....

That said, maybe the real mystery is what post did this writer think they were responding to? Or, were they simply trying to post a roller coaster review and didn't understand the difference between a regular post and a review?

If you look at their posting history, their previous post also involves a discussion of the various merits of those two amusement parks....and their thrill rides in particular.

The language, grammar, and limited number of posts over a nine-month period suggests someome with a narrow focus who's trying to prove they're right abiout which park is better.

Have to admit, I'm most surprised by the amount of time other folks (including me) have spent trying to deal with the original post....could be someone just pushing some buttons....and if so, it apparently worked!
