I enjoy a laugh as much as anyone, but clicking on a serious-sounding post only to find a link to "satirical-political" is the equivalent of being Rick-rolled. It gets old quick.

Not saying they shouldn't be posted; just that they be honestly labelled.

1. Strangely, when I clicked on this I thought it would be a joke.
I feel like I've been Rick-rolled. We need an icon telling us when a post is serious.
