    Haven't paid any attention to it so far, nor will I do so in the future.
    There probably are because when you give reputation to someone a box comes up saying "Hope you receive good reputation in return" or something similar.

    Always surprised at rando necrothreads, but the usual purpose of rep was a method of delegating moderator powers. Enough “rep”, from one or several people (depending on parameters) enabled the ability to delete posts and even temp ban users.

    Thanks, I wasn't aware of this, but the parameters may have been set quite strictly on FPG as it seems to be difficult to leave members reputation comments on more than one occasion.
    I have no idea how that part of the feature works.
    If I was to guess I think it depends on exactly how many reputation comments you leave for others before trying to leave more for those to whom you have previously left some.
