Don't worry about it. It was not really rude, it was just a bit vague.
The key to getting good answers is to ask good questions.
One of the hallmarks of a good question is that it is specific.
So the more specific your question the more chance of getting
a useful answer.

Also providing enough context is essential if you want to avoid
very generic responses. If you are asking about code, show
us the code. If you have an error send us the error text.

And very welcome. We look forward to any future questions :-)
