i didn't and wouldn't, without the other person's permission do any such
thing.  when i su'ed to root, i stayed within the confines of my own meo
space.  after all, i su'ed to root to fix something on my own meo site,
nothing more.

this is completely false.

you found out three days after it happened when i told you in irc.  i would
have told you sooner but that was the first time i'd seen ya since it

i wasn't trying to hide that i'd gotten access.  if i had i would not have
mentioned it publicly.  i *still* don't think i did anything wrong then.
i'm hurt that you don't have the facts straight about this incident and have
put my behavior/motivation in a bad light (whether you meant to or not).

i'm absolutely ok with this being a misunderstanding.  but please, let's put
it behind us for good.  i miss being friends.

that's all i've got to say about the matter.

if anyone has any questions or wants proof, my irc logs are available for
the asking.
