This is a great project. But as of today, ever since I imported my watched items, my JBidwatcher window has been filling up with items i did not bid on. They contain similar words to the items I were watching, yet I certainly never requested them. They keep popping up like really bad spam.

Does anyone know what might be causing this?

Go to your ‘My eBay’ page, select ‘Preferences’ on the left, under ‘My Account’. Down a ways on the preferences page, click ‘edit’ for ‘My eBay’ under the General section.

There’s an entry, ‘Show Personalized Picks’. Uncheck that, and it should fix that problem. If not, poke around, the odds are there’s some preference that lets you turn off getting the extra items in your watching or bidding list.
