Getting a question or answer removed is -3
but what if a question that you answered is removed? Do you lose the points then? That is no fault of your own.
I also see that you no longer get Xper for thumbs-downs; before you gained +1 Xper point thumbs-up or down, which I commented on for an answer of mine that received 2-3 thumbs-downs (and also a thumbs-up as well!)
Also, what about questions, answers, and ratings that were made before the changes? Are they grandfathered into the old rules?
How about poll questions that you can't see the results unless you vote? For example, a poll aimed at girls to see what they think about a guy, what he's doing, etc. is for the girls to answer, but the results are something the guys would benefit from seeing.
This has happened a few times, where I just clicked anything just to see the results and then submit an answer explaining what I did. I have gotten a couple of these answers removed, but the mod explained that they understood why I answered!
I also had a shorter answer (just yes/no), but that got removed! I did answer the question and did not violate the TOS!
I don't think those answers deserve to lose Xper for! Maybe you could take the points off only in cases of spam, under 16, and other TOS violations.
I seem to disagree with the changes. What do you guys think?
but everyone, thanks for your answers so far!

One of the questions I answered was removed, but I have no reason why. The question was asking people's opinions on Doctor Who. The closest you could get to not following the rules would be:
"Posted or shared any Content that violates the copyright, trademarks or other rights of any third party"
Though I don't see why. If one of the answers was bad then they could remove just the answer. But the question in general didn't appear to be anything problematic.1
