Collapitors? Compeborators?

What’s the science word for frenemy?  You know, that thing where there’s a lab you are communicating / co-submitting / cooperating with but also competing with? Could there be a worse relationship? Because ours are seriously fucking with our heads. It’s just like those weird velodrome sprint races, where it’s all cat and mouse and going slowly so that no one can take the advantage, then suddenly: FUCK YOU I’M OUTTA HERE! And then the other one is like oh no you didn’t and starts drafting! And then the first one starts selectively leaving out results that undermine their conclusions! And then it becomes much less like a velodrome.
