default watcher configuration

Everytime someone replys to a ticket they are added as a watcher. Some people do not like this and want to only be added as watcher if they manually do it. Is there some way of doing this?

This is likely due to the 'Autowatch' function. See here:

* https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/JIRA+5.1+Release+Notes#JIRA5.1ReleaseNotes-autowatch

Users can disable that function via their profile preferences.

Does this work for an on-demand installation. The user profile does not have many settings that I can see.

According to this documentation:

There should be an option under preferences at user profile.
