Meaning of ID10T ERROR in English

transcription, транскрипция: [ /I-D-ten-T er'*r/ ]

Synonym for PEBKAC , e.g. "The user is being an idiot". Tech-support people passing a problem report to someone higher up the food chain (and presumably better equipped to deal with idiots) may ask the user to convey that there seems to be an I-D-ten-T error. Users never twig.
