A nearby restaurant has a new policy where a 10% service charge is automatically added to the bill, and there's a tip line to add more. I can only assume this is meant to trick people who don't read?

You're missing the point. Many will miss the 10% is already included and won't adjust the additional tip accordingly.

I typically tip 18-22% so I would be a good candidate for the tip line. I think a 10% tip is cheap unless the service was bad
