(Often) Ticket 'Reporters' in JIRA become 'Watchers' automatically if those tickets are generated by the email-listener. With that, reporters do not get only the notifications configured in the notification schema for reports, but also those configured for watchers.
How can I configure that those reports are not addressed as watchers automatically?
Yes, that's a new feature in Jira 5 (5.1 I think, but the release notes are a blur)
People can turn it off in their profile options individualy, and/or you can set the global option under Admin -> Global settings.
