I hate doing this

I just filed my review for a manuscript submitted to a scientific journal, and I recommended that it be rejected. Someone put a bunch effort, time, and money into doing these experiments, and I pissed all over it. I rarely recommend outright rejection, but it really was a poor paper. I mean, I gave a detailed list of what was wrong and what needed to be changed. Still, it gave me no joy.
