About the JSHint (or JSLint), there are some opintions which can be customed by users to decide whether the warning should be evoked.
Like JSHint: http://www.jshint.com/

About debugging code
About unsafe for..in
About == null
About arguments.caller and .callee
About empty blocks
About unsafe comparisons
About assignments inside if/for/...
About functions inside loops
About eval
About unsafe line breaks
When bitwise operators are used
When code is not in strict mode
When variable is undefined
When variable is defined but not used
When blocks omit {}
When new is used for side effects

If we want to fix the JSHint warning, we should firstly decide which warnings should be fixed. thanks
BTW, I would like to join and fix some warnings.
