Accepting insults

WZ  has an article about Tahera Ahmad's complaint of facing discrimination on a UA flight when she asked for a can of Coke. The article contains a series of her Facebook posts which include, "I am truly dissapointed at the latest statement by United Airlines."

I am truly disappointed that the word "disappointed" was spelled incorrectly.

A comment posted on her Facebook page in response to her relating the incident included thanking Ms. Ahmad for the inspiring way in which she responded to an "ugly outburst of hatred."
"Our Rabbis taught: those who are insulted but do not insult, hear themselves reviled but do not respond, perform mitzvot out of love and rejoice in times of suffering, about them the verse says [Judges 5] “And those who love G-d are like the sun at its strongest shining.”

After googling the quote, I came across an interesting article titled HaNeelavim ve-Einam Olvim: The Value of Accepting Insults in Silence.
