web-emy

blending; noun
An enemy one has made on the Internet (usually in a message board or chat room).
 
The term was coined as a shorter way to express making an enemy on the web. The use of a dash in the word is purely personal opinion, as I have not seen it written.
Etymology : web 'World Wide Web', originally recorded in 1990 + enemy 'one that is antagonistic to another', from O.Fr. enemi
Source : "'Wow, I think I've made someone really, really upset on the Internet. I think he hates me.' 'So you've basically made a web-emy?'" — conversation, November 2008.
