I believe noob sniping is when an experienced debator debates the noobs scoring most of the time easy wins

Noob sniping is scouring the debate challenge section looking for easy wins (opponents that don't look very skilled). Or setting up a challenge that you expect a noob will take by using bad grammar purposefully, then going all out on them in round 2 (User mikal was famous for this).

also, what does "nac" mean?

Not all caps. Debate.org does not let you post in the forums in all capitilized letters (or just numbers), so users will say nac as a placeholder to allow their comment.
We all go a little mad sometimes.

Ah, makes sense.
