The opposite of 'Beneficial'. A reserved term in AGI alignment theory that acts as a speaker-dependent variable denoting whatever the speaker means by "bad" or "no, really actually bad" or "bad in the long-run", from within whatever their view is on where the future ought to go. See the entry for Value.
