    How to express it?

    If I am going to advise somebody has done some thing wrong in the past in order not to do it again, What shall I say?

    If I say:
    You must have not done that again.
    Can be or not.

    Re: How to express it?

    If you are going to advise somebody, you can say:

    I wouldn't do that again if I were you.
    I suggest (that) you don't do that again
    I advise you not to do that again.
    It's not/It wouldn't be a good idea to do that agai
    n.

    If you are ordering them, then you can say:

    Don't do that again.
    You mustn't do that again.
    You are not to do that again.
