ReduceReads and scatter/gather

Hallo everyone,
I have a question about ReduceReads when using scatter/gather. In the argument details of ReduceReads you write for the parameter -nocmp_names:
"... If you scatter/gather there is no guarantee that read name uniqueness will be maintained -- in this case we recommend not compressing."

Do you mean, that if I use scatter/gather, I should use ReduceReads with the -nocmp_names option so that the read names will not be compressed
OR
do you mean that I should not use ReduceReads at all when scatter/gathering.

I assume the first is meant, I just wanted to make sure. Thank you for your time and effort.
Eva
