Picking a nit... You could have picked a better analogy. Wolves are sociable critters. I would greatly prefer their company to that of any spammer.
Contrary to popular belief, wolves are not the mindless "man eaters" that they are often made out to be. They are, in fact, pretty timid where humans are concerned. Unfortunately, "timid" does not make for sensational headlines or even more sensationalistic movies, so wolves are often made out to be 102% opposite what they are in reality.
If I may... The phishing schemes (and spam in general) come from people (and I use the term loosely) who have all the redeeming social characteristics of toxic slime mold.
I'll shut up now and stop causing topic-drift. Keep the peace(es).
