From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  CrApTeX
   /krap'tekh/, n.
  
      [University of York, England] Term of abuse used to describe TeX and LaTeX
      when they don't work (when used by TeXhackers), or all the time (by
      everyone else). The non-TeX-enthusiasts generally dislike it because it is
      more verbose than other formatters (e.g. troff) and because (particularly
      if the standard Computer Modern fonts are used) it generates vast output
      files. See religious issues, TeX.
