Actually, snopes isn't capitalized.

I'll write to Barbara and suggest she give you a credit line.

But, in her defense,  she does a pretty good job.  She used Metcalf and
Barnhart, a state of the art book when it was published.  She gave them
credit.  Just because Metcalf and Barnhart didn't give you specific credit
about the term, but rather said in their intro that your contributions to
ADS-L were helpful in a general way, you probably should take up your "beef"
with them.  No need to "dog' her about it.
