That is true. You'll notice I don't judge all newbies as
incompetent jerks. Just you

You can try to frame what you did as an innocent newbie asking
questions but that is not what happened. What happened is
that you started a project on which other people relied that was
way over your head. That makes you more than just a newbie
that makes you incompetent. When you then started to get into
trouble you didn't just ask questions, you almost demanded that
people would fix your problems for you, bumping a thread
within a few hours if you didn't get an answer within that time.
That and similar behaviour makes you a jerk.

I am not judging you for the you receive. I am judging you for
behaving liken an asshole and trying to deny it.

And it probably becomes
 longer. If you don't want this to fester,
you'd better stop denying that you were behaving like an
incompetent inconsiderate jerk. People can forget and forgive
jerky behaviour but they don't tend to when they see the
other denying he was behaving like a jerk. Because they then
expect more of that kind of behaviour.

Oh we do have illusions of grandeur, don't we? You are in no position
to judge who is useful on this list or not.
