That blog post they cite includes this:

   My advice on JSLint: don’t use it. Why would
   you use it? If you believed that it helps you
   have less bugs in your code, here’s a newsflash;
   only people can detect and solve software bugs,
   not tools. So instead of tools, get more people
   to look at your code.
Unless I'm missing something, that easily qualifies as the dumbest thing I've read on the net in the last week--and I've been to /r/politics.

You're not missing anything. It's dumb. JSLint doesn't find all the bugs in my code, but it does find quite a few. There are several places where I deliberately ignore its recommendations, but all in all I take what it says seriously. I'm sure you do likewise.
