Unfortunately, I'm on a shared cpanel setup... so I presume I cannot 
edit this.  Any other ideas?

I have another way to do it, via the "user specific" options page, and I 
can force the submit and checking of the checkbox, but the problem with 
this option is that there is no email confirmation step, so it opens the 
door to possibly having people unsubscribe other people...(if one 
forwards a list email to someone else)

I may go this route, as I presume a "goodbye" mail goes out, so if the 
person was inadvertently unsubsubscribed, they will know about it and be 
able to correct the situation...
