I am.. amazed by your aggressive attitute towards everyone else and 
being ironic and calling everyone VIM's. What you fail to realize is the 
dumbness of what you're trying to do, there are no nice words I can use 
to explain it.

We were being ironic with you so that you could understand just how bad 
what you're trying to achieve is. You are being ironic with us because 
you think there's nothing wrong with logging in as root with telnet. 
There are a thousand ways I could go about explaining how bad it is and 
why it is bad, but in the end you'd just say I'm a VIM, so I won't even 

Oh well, your server, your password. Just don't say you were not warned.
