As many times as the Doctor went back into the Dalek's past to try & stop/prevent them, it's possible he pushed them to be more evil than dangerous.

Sure, they were created to be a master race of sorts, but the Doctor's interventions may have made a bad situation worse.

The Borg weren't evil, just single minded in their need to assimilate others.
Its a good point. The Daleks would still have been fairly militant, just going by their speech near the end of 'Genesis', plus their war with the Movellans, and the Humans. Otoh, did their encounters with te Doctor, and the Timelords motivate them to develop time travel, the time destructor, and various other super weapons?
I would say, it's very likely a good percentage of their advancement in Technology was in response to The Doctor or The Time Lords defeating them, and almost certainly Time Travel is one of them, since that's The Gillefreyans "Thing"
