Ignore his comment. Don't make the change, and go with what you know to be
correct. The odds are that nothing further will be said by this individual, but
if he does say something, tell him that you checked several sources and are
satisfied with your spelling of the word. If he wants to know why you didn't
say anything to him or follow his edict (or however he says it), smile and say
that you didn't want to further embarrass him.
