If people are rude, just tell them without being rude yourself. Just
tell them that their answer wasn't nice/good/helpful.
It often happens that people (I have to include myself here too) don't
read an email thoroughly but skip over it and hit the reply button and
'answer' without realizing that the problem described in the mail is
slightly different from what they assume.
 From the 'go google it' answer you got I suspect exactly this happened,
so IMHO it wasn't bad intention.

And if people really are rude on this list, there's only one thing to
remember: don't feed the trolls!
