noun. A gaggle of peevologists: folks who are probably beating eggcorns to death with a tire iron right now.

Real citation: “Peeverazzi has a lot of appeal, for example, since it gets at how annoying those folks are and how worthless the substance of what they do. But a bunch more candidates have real promise, and this opens a big window to additional ideas.”

Made-up citation: "I'm a member of the peeverazzi when it comes to quotation marks used for emphasis--though I did enjoy seeing the ad for a nursing home where the 'person' comes first."
