When freezing a cake, should I let it cool first or wrap and freeze right away?

I am a fan of always letting my cake cool first. So people will tell you they wrap the cake while it's still warm and freeze it. I seen cake that was put in the freezer still warm and it was not moist as some will tell you... It was plain soggy - Yuck!

I have read that you should always cool the cake first because if you wrap it while it is still warm it can allow bacteria to grow.

I let mine cool most of the way but they are not usually completely room temp - simply because I bake at night and don't want to have to wait that long to go to bed! LOL

I have read that other CCers do wrap them when warm. But like Cake_Princess said, I would be worried about too much steam and the possibility of them getting soggy.
