> # Hermes => hermetic?  .. nice naming :-)

http://www.pantheon.org/articles/h/hermes.html

Hermes was the messenger of the Greek/Olympic gods.  So, yes, it was nice
naming.

"Hermetic" comes from the same mythological figure, Hermes Trismegistus, as
he was believed to have invented a magic seal that would keep containers
airtight, hence "hermetically sealed."

As for the problem, it seems to be in spamwatch, and will be addressed.
