Energy creature

An energy creature is a stereotypical figure. An energy creature is someone who is articulate, has time to spare, access to the net, and a craving for negative attention.

Sometimes called trolls, or griefers, one individual energy creature can stir up dozens or hundreds of other people, fuelling their emotions and provoking a reaction. Every negative response feeds the creature and encourages them on.

Energy creatures derive from Star Trek, where phaser blasts made an energy creature stronger.
