i'm guessing you're checking the box and they're not.  if you haven't
<cfparam>'ed a form.nowords or a nowords variable on the processing template
then they'll get an error because a non-checked checkbox doesn't send any
value.  it only sends a value if it's checked.

without seeing the code on the processing page it'd be hard to guess what
else could be causing the problem.
