#designers how do you feel about checking a checkbox to disable a feature, vs defaulting checked to enable the feature?

@halkeye check means "on". Otherwise it's the same antipattern as "☑ to not receive our newsletter". Completely unintuitive.

You can *maybe* make the case for "☑ hide all X" but you're probably better off using yes/no radio buttons.
