Default Clarification – Data Snooping and Tukey’s EDA

In John Tukey’s book “EDA” (Exploratory Data Analysis) we learn to use descriptive visual devices such as “stem and leaf” plots, box plots, smoothing sequences, etc.

These things require a lot of rooting around in the data set, is EDA data snooping? Or is it only data snooping if you let what EDA reveals about the data guide you to a specific hypothesis?
