Why can't I give rep to some users?

Sometimes I try to rep a user, but the box which normally starts with "Give rep" instead starts with "Follow user". Any idea what the problem might be?

some users have chosen to turn their reps off (this is one of the settings available in your profile) and thus are not reppable.

Several people have said they cannot give me reps and this has been going on for 2 years. I will check my settings.

Also cannot find that setting in my profile.

Hi, your reps are on and you have plenty from the last 2 years Smilie. You can see them here: https://slickdeals.net/forums/member.php?do=reprec&u=480035

The setting to turn it on/off is only available in the classic version of the site at this time. It's under "edit privacy settings". If you uncheck the box to "Show Your Reputation Level", it also removes the ability to receive reps.
