Nicholas Snow's profile asks, "Please do not add parents without citing sources"... and yet...

... you guessed it. Somebody added parents with no sources.

It's been pretty well-documented that nobody knows who Nicholas Snow's parents were. Has anything new been uncovered in 2016?

If not, these parents should be detached.  Any concerns?

I'd recommend detaching them, but noting them within the biography as "potential" parents, and again reiterate that his parents are currently unknown with no proof or sources to date.

It looks like the parents came in through a merger (https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Special:NetworkFeed&who=Snow-3658)

But you may also want to add a note on the profile page of each of the parents too, since changes can be made by adding children, as easily as adding parents.

And maybe move the notice a little higher on the page, so it can be seen easily.
