I don't think "go" is a sentence, there is no subject.

Go where? It's an incomplete sentence, a command without a verb. Like saying Hello. Was a sentence. No, one is a command the other a greeting. Hello. Who? See what I mean?

What about "I do" ? :D

Go has the subject of "understood you;" therefore it is a sentence.

Actually, "Go." would be a complete sentence because the subject is implied and it could mean the same as "Leave."

The "I am" thing is an old one that was tossed around in forwarded emails, like the rest of this list.

It is not, as it is not a complete sentence.
