OKCupid bought by Match.com (no fooling)

OKCupid sold out to Match.com for $50M. They also took down their blog post about never paying for dating sites. There's an OKCupid discussion thread, though I wouldn't bet on it sticking around. Pretty sure Match is looking for the IP owned by OKCupid, not the userbase.

ETA: If you'd like to delete all your questions from the site before Match.com gets them but don't want to lose the data, use this greasemonkey script to download the questions and your answers in JSON format. Use at your own risk -- verify that everything was saved off before you delete from OKCupid!
