That's an interesting definition of punishment, what dictionary did you get that one from. Revenge " to inflicted (harm) punishment by way of repayment. "

The differences between punishment and revenge, is punishment is the formal version, or revenge. Revenge is is somthing the mob boss does. Punishment is somthing the goverment or a parant does.
