Yes, John did change Kelley's *word* in his response. It was clear to me that
he had done so to prevent *sending* an offensive word (that might be filtered
and cause problems for him).

Kelley deliberately changed it back, placing it in quotation marks as if that
was actually what he had written, which it was not.

John was merely objecting to having the term in his inbox. In my opinion,
Kelley deliberately antagonized him by her actions.

If John is guilty, it is of asking people to exhibit a manner of business
decorum when sending mail to his account. In that, I wholeheartedly agree - I
don't want emails containing objectionable words in my business inbox either.
