I cannot answer this question: Is there an infinite amount of wavelengths of light? Is the EM spectrum continuous?

There is no Answer button. At the bottom of the question is this message:

Thank you for your interest in this question. Because it has attracted low-quality answers, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site.

Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?

However, I have 102 reputation points at this time. I have not participated on physics.se yet; the points are awarded to me automatically due to my reputation on ell.se.

If it's due to a requirement to earn the points, wouldn't it be relevant to make earned explicit in the message?

The banner you see is the one that appears when a question has been "protected". The requirement is that you have 10 rep that was earned on this site. That is, the association bonus is not counted toward that requirement.
