The obscure word of the week is doryphore

This week’s obscure English word is doryphore. It’s a word coined in the mid-twentieth century by Sir Harold Nicholson, and means a critic who is both pedantic and persistent. I’ve attracted a few of those over the years, courtesy of my writing, not that any of them have had the guts to actually introduce themselves to me or anything.

Your challenge: make up a sentence using this word.
