What is another word for sin/crime/wrong-doing?

"I'm starting to write my book on the nature of value and worth. In it I'm defining the different kinds of deeds.


I need to name them in terms of worth and value.


There are worthwhile / valuable deeds (""good"" deeds which earn 'points')

There are worthless deeds - which have a net value of zero, but are in no way 'bad', e.g. doing nothing


And then there are the deeds which are the opposite to the good deeds. They lose you 'points'. Not necessarily morally bad, so cannot be called sins, not necessarily illegal or against the rules, just acts of negative value to your net worth. What should these be called?"
