I was just there and I didn't have a problem with the checkbox (I was able to uncheck it without a problem).   It's possible that they just really, really want you specifically on their mailing list....

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Hotel registration - This was a test, right?

I just registered for an overflow block room at

I noticed when I got to the Guest Details page that there was a
checkbox in the Contact Information block -- "Yes, I'd like to be
notified..." -- which was checked (not surprising) and not changeable
(that was surprising). Peeking at the code, I noticed that the form
tag had the words, "checked" and "disabled".

Now, since nobody could be so slimy as to do this intentionally
(right?). I helped them out by using my in-browser editor to correct
this oversight, because I wouldn't want them to waste electrons
sending me email that I don't want.

Hmmm... Check this box to tithe 20 percent of your income to the
library... Could work.
