Based on the name of an irc user (ipot) who was constantly insisting that everyone give him code without trying to code for himself. Has now become synonymous with all users of the same caliber.
<Joe Moron> help me now and give me codez!
<Jane Coder> Joe, don't be such an ipot... go read the manual and /try/ to learn how to code. We won't write code /for/ you, but we /will/ help you to write your own code.
