OK Cupid questions

The most interesting part of OK Cupid is how they do the matching based on statistics. Every answers questions, indicates how they'd like their match to answer, and gives a weight to the question ranging from Irrelevant to Mandatory. Each of the five levels are given a point value - 0,1,10,50,250. If someone answers with one of the replies you indicated were acceptable then they get the points, otherwise they get 0. So say you indicate question A is very important (50) and question B is a little important (1) - and someone matches A and doesn't match B. Then they get 50 of 51 possible points, or a 98% match. Now, it isn't that simple because they also scale based on the total number of mutual questions answered, etc. But you get the point. That's a fairly interesting way to do things. But what makes it such a time sync is that any user can submit questions into the system. They get vetted, but it does make for quite a range of questions. And questions are automatically weighted since someone can always say a it is irrelevant and then that question won't matter to someone matching your criteria.
