unrecommend

verb; derivation
Recommend against. Discourage use of, recommend against. Geeks are known to manipulate language as easily as they would programming code, and creating words like this is common. Unrecommend is an amusing word in itself, but also conveys its meaning clearly. I would think that disrecommend would be a better form, so as to clarify against meaning “removing previous recommendation from”, but the meaning is clear from its context regardless.
 
Wow, I would highly unrecommend drinking anhydrous alcohol, due to the benzene in it.
