Reviled in notes about us (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

abused

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'reviled' is the definition.
(similar in meaning)

'notes about us' is the wordplay.
'notes' becomes 'abed' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'abed' going around 'us' is 'ABUSED'.

'in' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for abused that I've seen before include "Offended", "Insulted; violated", "Mistreated", "Swore at", "Treated cruelly; insulted".)
