'ej Dojmey wID -- vInDa'ma' peq. 
He has killed many of our people.
 ("and he massacred multitudes - he slaughtered our compatriots") STID

(Lieven, 11/11/2013):  This word is derived from {Doj} "batch, pile, heap, accumulation" plus {-mey}, the general plural suffix.  Even if referring only to beings capable of using language, one would normally not say {Dojpu'}. 

Doj  			batch, pile, heap, accumulation (n)
qoq De'wI' Dojmey 	botnet (n)

Doch 			thing (n)
'aH 			paraphernalia (n)
tlhoQ 			conglomeration (n)
