What is the point of the up and down votes now?
It used to give points in the past if I remember correctly, but now it doesn't seem so.

You're quite an old member if you remember that!
Anyway, there is no point apart from showing agreement/disagreement or approval/disapproval.

It's just a way to express agreement or disagreement. So, it doesn't serve a big purpose or anything.
I don't remember the up and down votes ever giving Xper points.
They're just there as a quick and easy to way to show if you agreed with someone or not. The new feature on our profiles displays our top-rated opinions... but otherwise the votes don't do much.
It doesn't give points? Huh? Maybe it's simply to show how many people dis/agree with the given opinion. It still has a purpose... thought it can be abused/exploited... lol.

It still rewards the opinion-giver.
It allows you to influence the kind of input the site gets, if only by a little bit. This way, better G@Gers get more rewards, post more often, and give better answers, sometimes to answer your own question.
Just to express agreement or pure hate
