    Does the contents underlined grammatically correct? If not, edit them please

    Crazy English is insanely stupid in this cyber era.

    I'm afraid that Li Yang, the creater of CE, is most likely the same as a gold digger.

    Before we deal with your question, take a look at your title. Do you think "does" is appropriate?

    An inadvertent mistake.
    Thank you.

    No, not "do", try again.

    Yes.
    Both of your sentences are grammatical and the first one is acceptable. The second one is not natural.

    Note: 'creator'.

    A better title would have been Insanely stupid.

    Don't you know that the forum has got a new function when your mouse pointer moves to the area of a title, the content of the thread will automatically show up?

    That doesn't help with the search function. People can search and find similar questions that were asked before, if the thread titles are meaningful.
