Is that sentence a question? I would call it a statement, but someone is insisting that it is a question, and gave this reasoning:
"It is a question. It is implied. Sometimes you have to look past punctuation to actual context. There is an implied "Right?" at the end of that. Are you a native English speaker? That seems very basic."
