"Nemesis" is not a synonym, although it is widely believed to be one. "Nemesis" means "fate". -- Paul G 13:51, 22 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Nemesis means several things, archenemy being one of them (though it is indeed too strong for enemy). The common senses of the word have drifted a long way from its Greek root νέμεσις (nemesis) "righteous anger or retribution." —Muke Tever 16:04, 22 Apr 2004 (UTC)
