I'd like to have been cc'd in on that conversation; if indeed you gave
him the complete truth, then there's nothing to hide, right?

Until you retract your statement that you would happily give out root
access again to some other random person across the internet, all is
NOT well.

Calling you incompetent at managing a server is like calling a doctor
incompetent for surgically removing your throat to cure a common cold.
It's too late, at that point, to undo what's happened, but if that
same doctor still says he'd do the same again to cure another cold in
another patient, I think most of us would look for another doctor.
People deciding to stay with that doctor is NOT "all is well".
