Snide and condescending comments are a sign of low self esteem. 

Power differentials say this is true. 

If you believe yourself to be equal to others you have no reason to belittle or "talk down to" with arrogance. Snide comments are a feeble attempt to level an imaginary playing field.

Does that include snarky sarcasm tinged with low-brow humor?
Careful okaying sarcasm, it can be connected to low self esteem too, but most often is an expression of anger, not humor.
The sensitivity in this thread does my heart good!
