I always thought that you withdrew your endorsement. Now apparently you "unendorse" someone.

I think 'disendorsing' would be more etymologically correct!

The murdering of the English language continues apace! hmm

So if you withdraw funding for a project, do you unfund it? De-fund it? Disfund it? The mind boggles...

Unfriending? Unbirthdays, it never ends.

Then we now get "burglerised," and similar expressions from the USA.

Unbirthday is all right by me! I like the song 'A Very Happy (Merry?) Unbirthday' and have thought of certain presents as Unbirthday ones since seeing an Alice in Wonderland film over 60 years ago!
Dislike the ' verbification' of 'guest' and 'party' though. And more!
