Deadpan links to satire sites considered harmful

The politics threads contain lots of comments that are single links to news articles. Also people post links to satirical sites like The Onion, which is fine by me.

The word that begins with the letter "c."

Orkut Satire FPP Treated as Real News

This thread treats satire as a real news report. The author seems to have thought it was real (not having read the small notice at the bottom). I'd either put "[satire]" at the end or delete it.
