A phrase that is used to disregard yet acknowledge someone’s criticism, critique, observation, or suggestion. The connotation is a snide ‘I don’t care what you think. You are probably right, but that doesn't matter. Shut up.’

The situation often ends as an ‘I told you so’
“Bill, you really should turn off the power before you replace that switch” …
“Duly noted” …
***explosion of blue sparks***

“Cindy, I really don’t think those stiletto-heels are a good idea for where we’re going”…
“Duly noted”…
***ends up twisting her ankle.***

“Before you attempt this experiment, you need to fully understand the chemistry behind the reaction.”…
“Duly noted”…
