I guess I could do something like add ESLint to the list of alternatives to JSLint on the JSLint tag wiki, but that's not that horribly exciting.
The next priv on SO is "Access to Moderator Tools", which actually is awfully powerful. I would've never thought I'd make it there, but with the way points from old answers keep coming in like dividends from old investments, I guess it could happen.
And I can't help myself. 5000 came from another JSLint answer -- one I posted yesterday. I'm always surprised at the amount of venom JSLint gets on SO. There's almost always
Within a few minutes of the question's posting, there's that second comment...
... and it's got four votes. So five people have complained about the topic of the question within a few minutes of its posting, and rewarded pretty inflammatory, off-topic speech. So I finally did it; I replied too harshly.
The implicit VBScript comparison might have been too much. ;^) I'm sure JSHint & ESLint are good tools. I've followed both a bit and used JSHint for a while, and they're fine, if you want lots of room for customization... and intra-office debate.

WARNING: Some NSFW language here:
Often, it's lazy to decide for yourself instead of figuring out why a convention suggested by an expert might be smart.
Anyhow, there's nothing wrong with JSLint. If it doesn't work for you, I'm sorry. But when a JSLint user has a JSLint question, give them a JSLint answer. If you've got to throw in a, "But I usually use ESLint or JSHint," that's fine, but answer the question first.
