And if you want a script to work with that, here's one I wrote for 
greasemonkey (a firefox add-on that lets you script parts of your 
interface).  You'll have to alter the @include line so it contains your 
own site address.  This would probably work better as a bookmarklet, if 
someone wants to convert it.

You'll still have to click "submit" yourself (which gives you a chance 
to review if you want) but it will move all the defaults to be "accept"

var inputs = document.getElementsByTagName("input");

for (var i=0; i < inputs.length; i++){
	if(inputs[i].type == 'radio' &&
		inputs[i].name.indexOf("senderaction-") == 0 &&
		inputs[i].value == 1){
		inputs[i].checked = true;
// End script
