comment Word for prematurely calling a middle-aged person old?
I think demeaning may be the most appropriate for me (and my father). I'm posting the card this morning, so will accept demeaning as the answer. Cheers.

Ha - I'm sure the last one would go down a treat ;) Thanks for the suggestions.

Interesting suggestion. Duplicity ("double-dealing") isn't a bad suggestion either!

comment A word that describes a process that can be both good and bad
I agree with @J.R. - you have made a good suggestion! Dualistic is a term I could comfortably use to refer back to the "dualistic nature of the immune system" without any qualms about the reader missing my point due to an unfamiliar word. I will wait to see any more suggestions, but otherwise this would be my first choice I think.

I think this may be the easiest to immediately interpret what I'm getting at. I will obviously need to explain the concepts I'm talking about initially, but to refer back to the "dualistic nature of the inflammatory response" would work very well indeed. Thanks.

@T.E.D. the word 'bad' can mean bad OR good - I could surely not use it in this context to mean both!

@Jim that is of course a possibility. I was just sure that I'd heard a word used that quite accurately represented my meaning! Thanks to all for the suggestions.
