Some fungi are good, meaning that they are helpful to other living organisms. Some fungi are bad, meaning that they are harmful to other living organisms. A few types of fungi can be both helpful and harmful, depending on where they are or how they are used.

Jason Hodin (marine biologist, educator, member of the Puget Sound Mycology Society) here. I object to the question on whether the basidiomycetes are "good, bad, neither/both." What do you mean by good? A poisnous mushroom is NOT definitively "bad," even if it is not a good idea to eat it!!
