It seems the stop watching option is not really working when the user is the one who has reporter the issue. I experience this issue where I reported a user story and I am still receiving email notifications even though I am not watching the issue any more. This doesn’t seem to be normal and I would like it to be fixed because I am receiving an enormous amount of notifications that I essentially don’t want to receive anymore (but still needs to be notified when I actually want to watch an issue).
The reason why you still receive notifications is due to the settings of the Notification Scheme that is used for that project. You need to be an admin to change these settings.
These settings can be found here:
In your project click "Project settings" followed by notifications. Modify as you want but keep in mind that you change this setting for everyone and not just for yourself.
I'll join the same problem and would like to explain more.
We've fixed the notification scheme to exclude the reporter from all notifications (because in our system the majority of issues are reported by the same person, but he doesn't want to be notified on every update). BUT, the problem is that the reporter is by default also a watcher, and watchers do receive all notifications, so the problem persists.
Any idea how to fix this?

Another workaround to stop watching individual issues with this problem that worked for us:
This also worked using Bulk Change:
this worked for me
