Looks like the Washington Post digs Datamatch (and Jester): https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2018/02/13/for-just-one-day-love-is-in-the-air-amid-the-gigibytes/?utm_term=
In an era in which sexual hookups get all the attention, Datamatch, a creation of Harvard students, promotes old-fashioned dates.
"Datamatch’s crucial mistake was partnering with Jester Humor Magazine to spread this to Columbia. If they heard that our readership is “off-the-charts horny,” wouldn’t we be a better (and funnier) option? We would have made a much better survey, for one, that is a lot more Columbia-related and that more effectively reveal a user’s personality."

The Jester of Columbia firmly rejects rejections, especially Freudian ones. We believe in accepting everyone who likes to laugh and make other people laugh AND WE DO IT FOR FREE (*bribes suggested but not required). To quote one of our lesser-known alumni, Allen Ginsberg,

holy! everyday is in eternity! Everyman's an
