Ok, I see what you are talking about.

Personally I am glad that the guy was caught, but I see the point that it shows vulnerabilities in browsers that can circumvent Tor. I wasn't aware that it had been done with JavaScript, but honestly I hadn't thought about it much.

Even without a malicious payload, JavaScript can probably be used to identify you by looking at your browser settings like the fonts and plugins you have installed. That's probably not enough to get your address, but it is easily enough to correlate different visits to a website, so you are not really anonymous. TorBrowser makes some efforts to correct this.
