It is usually demonstrated by a great deal of arrogance, condescension, a propensity to offer insult and a strong emotional response to any perceived suggestion that a given problem is the result of an issue within 'their' code / network / database / realm of influence.

Please go back to your systems administrator and pursue a solution to this issue from your end."
