I can't believe I am writing in favour of Karl Larsen but I think this
amounts to trolling.

Snip, in Karl's mail refers to the first couple of usage of the term:
v. snipped, snip·ping, snips
To cut, clip, or separate (something) with short, quick strokes.
To cut or clip with short, quick strokes.

I don't think Karl is capable of using the second (informal) usage. I
have never heard that one myself in use before.
It's obvious that Karl has truncated your mail and put the word snip
in place to signify that.

Now I've done defending Karl and feel dirty. Ignore the other bad
advices Karl give.

My own two cents: People should use what it works for them. Let it be
the free (as in beer and as in word) software or Microsoft/Apple. If
it doesn't work for you, don't complain - especially if it is free,
either try to help fixing it (raise bugs, evaluate test cases, if
capable, supply code fixes etc.) or move to something else and don't
feel bad about it.
