NETHER YES!!! we might all argue constantly about the endermen, but everyone agrees on one thing-
ENDERMEN SUCK RIGHT NOW.
make them actually build stuff! make them stalk you in the shadows! make them way harder to kill! make it so that you NEVER want to EVER leave your house again! make it so that if you go to the nether to escape them, THEY FOLLOW YOU THROUGH! they need to be more difficult, more creepy, and less annoying! (and IMO, get a different color for the eyes. they look stupid with purple. and the portal particles are kinda stupid too...)
I think the endermans should quietly move blocks around when passive, but when they're hostile, they should be able to pick up and throw blocks AND mobs at the player at frightening speeds.
Or, if they should be physical attackers, they should attack really fast and flail their arms wildly about.
OR, make it so that if you stare at them for too long, and the screen gets darker, then if you keep staring, the screen goes black for a moment, and then BAM! You can see again, and they're right on top of you. Now THAT'S scary. Or make their prolonged stun gaze hurt you or something. That sounds fun.
I took on 4 creepers with a sword, lost no health, and killed them all without them exploding...does that make them too easy? I agree they should be changed, but I don't think you beating them is a valid point in the argument.

endermen should change. if they attack, and a creeper is near, it should pick it up, and suicidal bomb you. GIVE THEM SOUND OTHER THAN ZOMBIE! make their eyes red and have them make an extreme amount of red particles on attack. have them pick up skeletons for like guns. that would be epic! OH! ENDER-JOCKEYS!!! SOOOO EPIC! 25% chance when endermen spawn hmm what else... enderman dungeons... shreiks when you look at it. eerie... grabs item out of your hand. lol. throws a block at you if it is holding one.
The Ender man is petty at best i mean like i killed 2 while trapped in a box space with a sklly shootin me the ender man needs:
packs(like zombie pigmen ) so they work togather
to be relentless and rip down ur house to get u
ender men need to be rarly found in packs letalone alone relly rare spwn at midnight maby and only then
ender perls should buld a warp blocks that link to teliport like nether portles warp u 2 a place in the nether
ender caves(a rare doungin filled with aggrisave ender men that shuts with sand behind u)
ender men to screem at a vary high pich and maby lagh
to have a aggresave zone that u avoid
avoid ur arrows when chasing u
to stay away or go around hazerds(water lava ect)
to walk on water
to have see through or wite eyes
to pick up and through mobs like creepers (i would a bomber that teliports amagen that)
to possably spwn with creepers in there inventory(1 in 100 chance )and gun u down
and a theme song
plus meny more
i love the consept at first i was terrafide but than i killed evry one neer me and am like wow they suck so weak and not scary at all.
The enderman should teleport in front of you immediately when he sees you.
Then you should look away, because if you look at his eyes for half a second, you become paralyzed for a while, and he makes a VERY noisy and SCARY scream.
At that point, the FOV goes immediately to quake pro, and your vision becomes red. The moon becomes black.
A strange music starts to play, and random monsters spawns around you with about 10 meters of distance.
They only stop spawning when you kill the enderman, but he teleports so fast, and you can't follow him with the red vision ( sometimes slowy darkening and lightening ) and the increased FOV.
Then you die. Or, in some cases, you can kill the enderman and your vision slowy gets normal, and the music
suddently stops. THAT would be scary.

No no you guys have it all wrong. The endermen should still do what they do now (shake when you look at them), but instead disappear when you turn away. Where did they go? How did they disappear? WHO NOSE?
Then they reappear behind you at some random point in time.
That or remove their teleporting ability and make them immune to all player attacks.

Minecraft makes you lose weight if you post in forums and literally shake with anger when someone posts something stupid.
Endermen need more health. It was said to us that Endermen were suposed to die 10 seconds in water, in the final release of them it is 3-5 seconds in water. And 4 hits with an iron sword = kill?! Also, get rid of the purple eyes and purple particles. It looks gay. Their eyes should be white cause it's cool, and black particles as if their skin is shedding off and flying into the air. The sounds should also be whispers or deep, low hisses.
Also, this is how I think they should act when attacking.
1. You look at them, they growl/hiss, etc. You look away and then look back and their gone.
2. You hear whispers behind you, look behind you, and they are about 10 blocks away, frozen. You look back then back again, they are 3 blocks closer.
3a. You run away
3b. 4b. OR you run up to them and hit them with your sword, and they teleport away.
4. They then teleport directly behind you and attack/kill you.
And don't make Endermen burn in the day. Make them catch on fire then teleport away(AKA despawn)
Notch could also make it so that when animals look at Endermen (because they look at mobs and players and other animals then hop around) then look away, Endermen will attack them. Not zombies, skeletons or creepers as they don't have eyes.
Also, Notch should make it so Zombies(and possibly skeletons depending on minecraft's canon, but not Creepers) will attack animals on sight.
I thought about the idea of endermen stealing items from the player... but I wouldn't use endermen. I'd use a creeper.
Maybe a baby creeper or a different coloured creeper. Or maybe a mob with a big delieriously happy face! He sneaks up behind you, touches the player. Takes something, then tries to run away! and he's fast!
Just a suggestion for what I think would make Endermen much scarier to even be around: If they were anywhere in your field of view (not directly on the cursor) they would freeze and stare at you ominously with glowing eyes. If at that point you turned around they would teleport to you and attack you. Their attack strength should be drastically increased to make them very frightening to combat. If you kept them in your field of view they would continue staring. If you put your cursor directly on them, they would immediately teleport you and attack you ferociously possibly killing you with two or three blows. This would make players avoid any eye contact with them, and you would not have the first hit advantage because as soon as you even point at them, they fight. Make sure to give me +1 if you agree!
i got a different idea, how about the enderman "twist your mind" and have voices playing inside the player, and the view darker a bit (same that happens in the "old" void) , this will scare enough i think
