The Help Vampire: A Spotter’s Guide
Help Vampires are found in every public online community, from those nearest to our hearts to those furthest from our principles.
Instead of consuming of ill-gotten hemoglobin, these vampires suck the very life and energy out of people. By nature they feed on generous individuals who tend towards helping others, and leave their victims exhausted, bitter and dispirited.
#2: Cease Enabling Behavior
Reward self-help and helping others.
Be friendly. People and Help Vampires are much more likely to become useful members of the community if they’re met with kindness and encouragement rather than condescension and spite.
