What does "ignorant" mean when used as an insult?

It seems to mean something like "rude" or "inconsiderate". I myself am ignorant about very many things, because there are many things I don't know, but this doesn't seem to be what people mean when they derisively call someone else ignorant. They don't mean "this person doesn't know about a certain topic".


@JordiGH from these responses, perhaps it's fair to say that a good number of people are ignorant about how to properly use the word "ignorant". ;)
