Nullify.

Nullify counters Purge Magic in the counterspell step. I thought this was clear from the rules.

Me too. My opponent required a second opinion. Thank you.

If it was clear from the rules, he would not have ask.

Not remotely true. Some people don't read rules and even attempt to parse them properly.

Others will query any interpretation not favouring them.

This may not be the case here, but it certainly is in numerous cases I've come across in person.

And some people make snide little comments to people asking about rules, on a forum made to ask questions about rules.

They are not stupid; they are not cheaters, and I am sure if everyone read every word of a rule book; understood it completely; and had perfect memory about what they had read, they could remove the "Rules" section of every forum on earth. But that's never going to happen.

I thought this was clear to anyone who reads the forums.

Hey, paladin, chill. Jonathan explicitly said, "This may not be the case here." If you've never played with a true rules-lawyer like the ones he described, then all I can say is, consider yourself lucky.

Not snide - it's a valid observation. You are the only one being inappropriate.

That would imply that rulebooks are perfect to begin with which they are not. In fact most of my favourite games have either a) very flawed rulebooks or b) rulebooks I find fine, but which don't make sense to many. Option c) - rulebooks that by common consensus are clear and perfect are a very rare breed...
