Can this be prevented?
I just did a bulk change on a bunch of issues to distance myself from them (remove as reporter). Now I'm a watcher on all of them and I don't see any way to bulk change watcher!
There is a user setting called 'Default autowatch' this is available from https://<instance>/secure/admin/ViewUserDefaultSettings.jspa. Set this to disabled to avoid the autowatch behaviour.
As for completing a bulk edit of the field watchers, this is currently a feature improvement for the OnDemand environment, please add your vote and comments here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/AOD-6041#comment-449383
