I hope not, but that would explain the crazy price.

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

Aside from the limit, how would you guarantee that the seller matches up himself as the buyer on an open exchange?

They got a list of accounts, but not access to ALL the accounts. The passwords were encrypted, but not strongly, so if you had a weak password it is possible for someone to decrypt it. The crazy part is that they got access to the database through a compromised computer that is owned bu the someone who was doing a security audit on the back end of the exchange!
