     *  <samp>By default, for checkboxes, radio buttons and select boxes, the library will prevent the submission of other
     *  values than those declared when creating the form, by triggering the error: "SPAM attempt detected!". Therefore,
     *  if you plan on adding/removing values dynamically, from JavaScript, you will have to call the
     *  {@link Zebra_Form_Control::disable_spam_filter() disable_spam_filter()} method to prevent that from happening!</samp>
     *
     *  @param  string  $id             Unique name to identify the control in the form.
     *
     *                                  <b>$id needs to be suffixed with square brackets if there are more checkboxes
     *                                  sharing the same name, so that PHP treats them as an array!</b>
     *
     *                                  The control's <b>name</b> attribute will be as indicated by <i>$id</i>
     *                                  argument while the control's <b>id</b> attribute will be <i>$id</i>, stripped of
     *                                  square brackets (if any), followed by an underscore and followed by <i>$value</i>
     *                                  with all the spaces replaced by <i>underscores</i>.
     *
     *                                  So, if the <i>$id</i> arguments is "my_checkbox" and the <i>$value</i> argument
     *                                  is "value 1", the control's <b>id</b> attribute will be <b>my_checkbox_value_1</b>.
     *
     *                                  This is the name to be used when referring to the control's value in the
     *                                  POST/GET superglobals, after the form is submitted.
     *
     *                                  This is also the name of the variable to be used in custom template files, in
     *                                  order to display the control.
     *
     *                                  <code>
     *                                  // in a template file, in order to print the generated HTML
     *                                  // for a control named "my_checkbox" and having the value of "value 1",
     *                                  // one would use:
     *                                  echo $my_checkbox_value_1;
