Phantoms in Minecraft?

So one moment me and the boys are having fun in survival building our big empire and the next we get knocked out of our building towers by phantoms for some reason. In a server with 7 people all doing different stuff it’s really annoying to get everyone to sleep together so we have to endure this joke of a feature, right?

If you don’t sleep you get to live with the mobs that’s the deal ,people were getting too good at staying out of the mobs way that Minecraft creator made a mob specifically to annoy you. And apparently we even voted for it.

The thing that makes every other mob better than than phantom is the fact that every single other mob keeps to itself unless you go looking, phantoms tho they will try to hunt you and kill you.
