After admitting to tracing from Google imagery, you refused to tell
which objects were involved. You left other members no choice - they had
to take the prudent course of action. Had you been willing to
collaborate, this could have been avoided.
You wish that, after reading you admitting to tracing from Google
imagery, other contributors would accept your retraction and continue as
if nothing happened - but it is not possible : your initial admission
cast a shadow that other project members are not willing to bear.
