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.
