    Not in sleep mode.
    Platform watcher is off.
    Keyword watchers if off.
    No project watchers.
    Requester watchers are all on.

    Every so often, Panda is creating TV watchers and catching random HITs. None of these are in my requester watchers. I only run one platform watcher, and If I leave it off for a long time, when I turn it back on I will get flooded with HITs within seconds, so not sure why strays are coming through with it off.

    You might be asking, why not just put it in sleep mode, but I have few dozen requester watchers that respect sleep mode. When I want to do something else, like watch TV, I want to get that stray remesh, or Jeff Binder that comes through, but I don't want to be bothered with anything that is on the scrapper.

    I have closed and restarted QBC a few times over the last couple of days since I noticed this issue, but still getting strays. Any thoughts as to where the phantom watcher is? @ChrisTurk
