uncertainty adjustment gone?

Does anyone know if OkCupid recently (in the past week or two) changed their matching algorithm so that it no longer subtracts a few points from your match scores to account for the uncertainty based on how many questions you've answered in common? A lot of my matches all suddenly jumped up a few points, I'm now seeing some 98% and 99% matches which I never had before, and I'm getting weirdly high matches with people who have answered few questions. So it really seems like that's what they did, but they don't seem to have said anything about it.

P.S. If they did indeed do that, that makes it much harder to trust high match scores now. And not knowing, means it's harder to trust the scores anyway.
