Confluence - can I deactivate "notify watchers" somehow?

Good afternoon. I am working on lots of pages in Confluence right now. Many times I forget to deactivate “Notify watchers” when I save a change. Is there a way to deactivate that feature altogether, somehow?

Well, as a regular user, you can do it only by checking that little box. Globally all email notifications can be deactivated. Most of the time, that is not wanted or smart:

Here we filter the emails and don’t worry about the flood of notification emails coming in as we don’t use email for general communication anyways.
