genocidal much-better-now-thankiacs

noun phrase. Decent folks--good country people!--who don't wipe out humanity anymore. They wouldn't think of it.

Real citation: "But without the offer Adama would never have considered allowing the genocidal maniacs, sorry, genocidal much-better-now-thankiacs, to join the fleet in the first palce. Tag along, sure, the baseship is no match for the Galactica, but it isn't like the technology offer was created to make it more reasonable for him to think of accepting them fully IMO, as he was never planning to offer them acceptance, it isn't like he was contemplating it and the Cylons agreed to the technology gift in return. The acceptance was part of their terms, not his desire. For all we know he may hate the idea but thinks the benefits are too good to pass up."

Made-up citation: "My door is welcome to all genocidal much-better-now-thankiacs. We've all made mistakes. Personally, I ate 409 leprechauns during a rough year in the eighties, but who's counting?"
