According to Google's official stand, Nofollow is used to prevent link spam and thus has a reduced value compared to the links without Nofollow tag. This leads me to believe they are worth something, just maybe not as much as dofollow. And it is said that nofollow gives trust so getting Nofollow links won't harm.
In the end it could be good and in the beginning it doesn't really hurt :-)

I wonder why people hate No follow blog, I have to admit that No follow blog is good for me, it increase my site from PR1 to PR2, I have check it on back-link check and mostly see the no follow blog still back up my rank positively to improve my page rank

I think nofollow sites gives good traffic as well but not PR juice hence it is still worthy to link to nofollow sites.

As I know links with nofollow are not counted as back links for the most search engines, eventhought, they can bring you visitors and traffic, also there are making your site more famus to people who watch your link.

All i know no follows is useless for backliniking in your site but if you are selling or having an affiliate its okay with no follow because you are marketing in order to have a sales. well thats my opinion

No follow links are not useless but it's nothing as compared to do follow links.

Nofollow links are not counted by Google, but there are lots of other ranking systems, so they have some value, too.
