Error ID10T (A Leet spelling of "Idiot" Pronounced "AI-DEE-TEN-TEE") is a common error reflected in the IT world. It usually involves blaming computer manufactures or others for errors and conditions beyond the company's own control and is a simply nicer way to describe user error without demeaning them. Unless they understand the subtle reference.
What commonly causes this error can range from simply failing to turn the computer on or plugging it in, to deleting an important system file, and oftentimes due to downloading malware and viruses without knowledge of what comes in packaged downloads. (Smileys, Signatures, Email Backgrounds...etc.)
IT Guy: Help Desk, how can I assist you?
Person: Yes, I received an email saying I should delete a file call "rundll32" from my windows directory because it's a virus. Should I be worried? Because my friends have it too. My computer wont start anymore.
IT Guy: Don't panic, its just User Error #ID10T.
IT Guy: Yeah, a faulty condition exists between the logic processing unit and the operational control modules.

Person: Well, I bought your Blandy laptop last may, and every time I drop it, It turns off! I keep losing my work and its annoying! Also, now its making this annoying grinding sound since I took it to the beach. I tried blowing in the disk drive but all it did was make it worse! Then I spilled coffee all over my laptop and it was fine until I put it in the sink to wash it! Now it doesn't even turn on!!!
Support guy: It sounds like you have an Error #ID10T.

Person: What? I don't get it?
Support guy: You're an idiot. Get it now?
