Rude messages and 100 best books

Someone just sent me a rude email about the web page where I compare the results of the BBC Big Read Best 100 Books with two other lists to spot which books made it to more than one of the lists. My correspondent, whose name is similar to that of a Simpsons character, said:

If you’re going to be a critic learn to count. Crime and Cunishment is on all 3 lists.

So I had no choice but to reply:

If you’re going to send offensive messages, you should learn to spell “Punishment”. It is, after all, on all three lists.
