Are "Noobs" on Snapzu to be dubbed "Whipper Snappers"?

According to reports over at the heated, but somewhat superfluous thread going on over in /t/lounge, /u/CuppaMatt has coined the term "Whipper Snapper" or just, perhaps "whippersnapper" to refer to our new brethren.

Not only does this obey the undeniably true principle of us all being called Snappers, but it also is an endearing term to help ease newcomers in to the new name they will be referring to themselves as when discussing how awesome Snapzu is to their friends and colleagues, many of which will be yet to try out the site. This means that many new users will be pre-conditioned to the term, which can only be beneficial to the solidarity of the community.

All that said, it is not canonical in the same way that "Snapper" is, so it is only fair that Team Snapper debate the official nature of this term in full. I am in the "for" camp, but I am sure with the diverse and vibrant crowd we have already amassed here, there will be a range of opinions that deserve to be heard, after all, who would we be to use a term like this out of mindless gut-instinct and without full enquiry in to the alternatives? Not snappers for sure.

So - snappers - are you for or against "Whipper Snapper" (or "whippersnapper")?
