 I've noticed that there are lots of people in the world who don't even know what the correct definition of the word is, and believe with a damn passion that the word means that someone is rude. No, it does not mean that. It means lacking knowledge or education in something. I've gotten into many arguments with morons (including my mother) who would not give up on it, them thinking they knew the right meaning. And if you don't believe me, why don't you just look up the definition yourself.

I did look it up out of confusion and the dictionary definition states: 

ig·no·rant

     [ ig-ner- uhnt ]   Show IPA
–adjective
1.
lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned:  an ignorant man.
2.
lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact:  ignorant of quantum physics.
3.
uninformed; unaware.
4.
due to or showing lack of knowledge or training:  an ignorant statement.

the reason i think most people think that ignorant means rude is.... 
if someone is rude they have not been trained or taught  
how to properly act in public or to ones peers... 
hence making they are ignorant, that's my guess.

I think that ignorance has also taken on a meaning of indifference to learn. So someone who is ignorant doesn't care enough to learn the right way to treat people.

It MEANS    unlearned, but CAN be used in the case of a rude person because they don't know how to behave in a social environment or whatever they case may be. The OP is ignorant of the uses of the word and assumes that everyone else is ignorant in the same way. I see where the OP is coming from, but their thought process in this instance is missing a step.

The reason people think it's rude is because dumb@$$3$ don't like being told that they're idiots.

So if someone is being a dick to everyone and someone calls that person ignorant; it's DEFINITELY because they are dumbass idiots and ABSOLUTELY NOT because they are commenting on their lacking knowledge of proper social etiquette?
