Nemo has a fairly strong definition of "evil". Most people seem to use the word fairly loosly and in a manner analagous to "devious".
Nemo uses "devious" when he means devious, and "evil" when he actually means evil.
Here is a small summary, in a manner of speaking, as to how nemo views things...
How do you react to action? + = Good action o = No action - = Bad action If you react with a... + for a - ... Godliness + for a o ... Kindliness + for a + ... Friendliness o for a - ... Cowardliness o for a o ... Lifelessness o for a + ... Thoughlessness - for a - ... Childishness - for a o ... Meanness - for a + ... Devilishness
(I got this from seminary (Mormon bible class) many years ago with a reference to Matthew 5:43-47)
Now, in my (nemo's) opinion, devious can fit into either Friendliness, Childishness, or meanness, depending on how it's handled. Basically, it's part of all three. Evil fits quite firmly alongside Devilishness.
