## Understand ##
"Lercio" is the Italian paragon of "the Onion". It is a website that publishes blatantly fake and ridiculous news, often with satirical or humoristic intent.
## Technical safety ##
The website is fully safe from the technical point of view. AdBlock prevents me from seeing ads, but the website does not require users to download anything. Super-safe.

Although the website states it aims to publish fake and satirical news, such disclaimer is often missed when other users share its pages. This is also one of the reason the website is successful: people react to the news as if they were real, and then they share 'em, only to be mocked by those who are aware of the website fake nature.
So, even if it is regarded as a good site and always delivers a pleasant browsing experience for those who are aware of its character, it might appear heavily misleading and opinionated for the serendipitous and uninformed user. I regard this as an understandable danger embedded in all satire and humour.
Consequently, although I am eager to rank the site Green because of my positive user experience, I feel urged to:
- Advise against potential misleading claims or news (that is, the site's purpose);
- Advise that it might contain opinions, either religious of political, aimed at eliciting public outrage and reactions;
- Advise that, given it requires a savvy critical attitude, it might be not suitable for children who are not able to tell reliable news from false ones;
- Finally, the site is not suitable for kiddos because it contains coarse language and adult topics (though no full nudity).
