If you don't want to use pins then don't ;) And it's really not that much extra work.

I pinned for many year until a few months ago. I was letting my 2 y/o run around in a pinned flat and she came up to me crying with a pin sticking her in the side! Ouch! She had actually ripped it open and it was poking her! So now I only snappi. I find if I really pull the side in before I snappi I can get a good tight fit. I much prefer to fasten my dipes because I really HATE poopy cover too.

There are lots of reasons to pin. A lot of people use flats and prefolds for a lot of different reasons. Cost, natural fibers, ease of laundering are a few. Snappis can be difficult to use and you can't go coverless with a snappi. I personally prefer a snappi but haven't really tried pins much. Been poked too many times. Pad folding isn't very good for poo containment and as one mama pointed out on another thread somewhere that pad folding makes little bums look like they have a 2x4 in the cover LOL.

Yes - this. 
 
I don't pin all the time but it doesn't take anylonger to use pins than a snappi.  I tried coverless with a snappi and DS2 got stuck to the couch. LOL
 
I dislike snap fitteds too, don't get as good a fit.
 
I hate just laying in a cover and I did loos my snappi and only had pins for three days.  Wasn't as bad as i thought it would be.

I started using cloth diapers before they invented snappis and pins were the only option. I've tried the snappi but I used pins for about 7 years while diapering my oldest 3and it's just second nature. I'm not even sure how I figured out how to do it. My mom may have shown me or I might have gotten instructions with my first delivery from the diaper service. This is an excellent tutorial and to those whose pins aren't slipping through the fabric, try storing them in a bar of soap. The soap does a wonderful job of lubricating the pin so it goes through the diaper easier.
