    A inexperienced and/or ignorant or unskilled person. Especially used in computer games.

    I always think of a "New User" - unexperienced probably - but that does not mean he or she is ignorant? Am I wrong?

    Sorry, but I just think that this word is a little extraordinary to explain it.

    Interesting the date when the word first was invented or used: 14th century.

    It was Middle Age.

    Pronunciation: &#39;ig-n(&-)r&nt Isn&#39;t in Dictionaries the pronounciation shown
    like [ignore:nt] while ":" means a long "e"?

    And I suppose the majority of the roots to ur vocabulary only date back to 1990?

    muchspl2 is right, if one has a firm grasp of language, he knows that the word ignorant is itself benign. It is the context and the manner in which it can be used that ignorant takes on a harsh or insulting tone. No insult is intended as used in the original quote, only fact.
