One side says "don't clip the spring 'cause then it will bog even worse over the whoops" and the other group of miscreants shouts "clip the beejezzuz out of it and it will pop a wheelie like an FCR".
A clipped spring gives the slide a little head start over the OEM spring on throttle opening. So the reality is that both camps are slightly right. It's how "slightly" that's at issue. Clip away.... you can always get a new spring.
