I don't like that I'm not allowed to give a rep to someone just because I recently gave that person one. I rarely ever push that button, so it actually means something if I do it, so the fact that I want to push the rep button twice for one person without pushing it God-knows-how-many times for others in between just sucks and it promotes the absurdity and meaninglessness of the button to begin with, because if you want to use the button, you have to give rep to a bunch of people you don't want to, just so you can give it to one person you do want to give it to.
One thing I'm wondering-could we switch it to a timer instead of forcing people to pass rep out? It's not that hard for me to find an adequate number of posts to rep, and if I'm serious about giving kudos to someone for a post they made there's plenty of abandoned accounts I can dump rep onto to free it up for them, but I'd much rather not have to do that. A timer of two weeks to a month between reps for one person seems perfectly reasonable to me so long as it wouldn't require some complicated hack to make it work.
