This actually sounds like more fun to say, although the notion of having fun while discussion the death of 90% of a population probably falls short of appropriate behavior.
Decamate's not bad, if only because it sounds appropriately violent (deck a mate). Nonacontamate sounds vaguely sexual and not sufficiently violent. And it has too many syllables. But otherwise not bad.... thanks!
