I just realized that my spear phishing file I had in cron.daily was 
pretty old so I went looking to see if there was a new one and found 
that Jules blog where it was linked to said it was now hosted at 
ScamNailer which appeared to be a newer version of the same thing. So I 
assume it's a replacement and that Spear Phishing can go.
