makes sense to them but it isnt grammatical by even the furthest stretch of the imagination. I'm not even sure it can be classed as English

Not so! The sentence may make sense, but the incorrect grammar may change the meaning, as in the 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves' tale. The sentence makes sense with or without the comma, but the meaning is totally different.
