Noob-sniping is when an experienced and competent debater accepts a debate made by a new, inexperienced member in order to get a free win.

They are sniping (taking out) the noob.

Is it noob sniping if you don't know anything about the person (e.g. whether they are a noob) before accepting the debate?

No. I think it only counts if you accept the debate knowing that they are new, you are more qualified and are sure to win.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.
