He didn't take undue amounts of points off for Gryffindors misbehavior, and we don't see any Slytherins misbehaving in his class, so I don't know what points he'd have taken off for their actions.
Hmmm....I'll have to do some reading for a more complete reply here, but just because we see Crabbe & Goyle in detention does not mean that Snape was the teacher who put them there; it could have been several others. As far as Slytherins not misbehaving....the one example that stands out is Malfoy when he & Harry cursed each other but others got it instead (Hermione's teeth episode). As I recall, Snape did nothing at all to Draco for punishment there.

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff...

....I miss David Tennant....
