I almost had a heart attack when I saw those checkboxes, because a minute earlier I had already submitted the same form for another item – without paying the checkboxes any attention, as they had always been unchecked by default. Checking them without good reason can result in a metric ton of useless busywork, I was absolutely horrified.

Luckily, the checkboxes in the screenshot above are not checked. This is what they look like when they are checked:

Check mate.

Don’t fucking do that. Just don’t style default controls. (Of course they aren’t even actual checkboxes but styled <div>s.)
