I'm downloading flash. Adobe hides a checkbox in what looks like an ad, and checks it on my behalf:

I'm disgusted.

I can't stand it when any site ticks boxes for me. Of course, they learned it from Windows' software install practices. Click next, there's a box already ticked to put a shortcut on your desktop. You untick the box. Continue. It still puts one there. 1oyvey.gif1mad.gif

This, however, is particularly egregious; you're right. Though I don't see it at all. Maybe my extensions block it somehow...

At least Apple's automatically ticked boxes don't stop you from just ignoring the e-mail field entirely and downloading anyway. That's how it should be.
