    It shouldn't be allowed to complain about 100% optional features.

    Solution:
    The normal .jar file is stored in the bin folder, but a copy is made when updated and encrypted, when you join a server with 'mods = false' in the properties file, the encrypted jar will be loaded, just like a texture pack.

    This in no way will stop the problem, but it will bar a lot of people who use hacks.

    Edit: Also, don't vote 'till you've killed one/seen one and been killed please.

    1. Too many.
    (You see at least one a night, sometimes even five.
    Improve: "Make Them More Rare")

    2. Too hostile.
    (When seen, as they are now, and you look away, with them in sight, they turn hostile and chase you, detracting from the sense of not seeing what's scary.)
    Improve: "When you look away they stay still, until you can no longer see them at all.

    3. Blends in too easily with other mobs.
    (when seen they are often just another obstacle, not a threat themselves.)
    Improve: "Make other mobs scared of them (also adds to the fear factor).

    4. Too easy to defeat.
    (It takes 2 hits with an iron sword to kill, and you can just walk to them without looking.)
    Improve: More damage, less health. Moves when you get too close.

    5. Not scary.
    (They walk around, instead of teleporting.)
    Improve: Teleportation is the main means of travelling, I think that should be the main point of Endermen.


    Right now, Endermen are just another mob, a small inconvenience to the player.
    Endermen should induce nightmares.


    Disclaimer:
    I AM NOT ASKING FOR ANYTHING, MERELY SAYING THAT ENDERMEN ARE NOT SCARY AND CAN BE DEFEATED TOO EASILY.
    I AM NOT SUGGESTING ANYTHING, BUT STATING WHAT I HAVE FOUND WHEN PLAYING IN SINGLE PLAYER AND MULTI-PLAYER.
    I AM NOT SAYING MOJANG SHOULD MAKE THIS HAPPEN, BUT IF SO, TWEAK THESE MOBS TO BE MORE SCARY AND MORE OF AN OBSTACLE.
