    Re: used in a sentence

    The speaker could be talking to a person who has taken up residence on an extremely large piece of wood sticking out of the ground, but that is probably unlikely.

    We need more context to know what the 'post' is.

    This makes no sense to me at all.

    Re: used in a sentence

    colossal post you occupy
    My best guess is that this represents two (let's call them) thoughts.

    "Colossal post" is someone agreeing with what you have written and describing your post as extraordinarily great.

    "You occupy" probably refers to the American phenomenon of people gathering to "protest" Wall Street though they have no discernible message or suggested solution to today's economic woes.

    The person who posted "you occupy" probably meant it as a compliment. Like saying "you rock!"
