Rep is nice, but everyone needs to remember... don't take advice blindly! Read, research, read more, and then decide for yourself what *you* think. Taking advice here without engaging your brain, even from people with many green squares, is no different than taking whatever your LFS
says as fact. "Well the bottle *says* it cures ich, marine velvet, cyano
, AND gives you 0ppm nitrates..."
Regarding the original question though... I've never seen that issue when giving rep. I know I can't give it to someone that I've already given rep to within XX number of times... but I've always been able to give it to new people.
