I do; I check the weekly increase every week, and check who the top
offenders are.  If someone from my vicinity/circles is on the list
(doesn't happen frequently; more often for the BGP updates report than
for CIDR), I may send them a note and ask what happened.

"Reads" may be an exaggeration, but I'm sure some look at it.

I think it still provides an incentive for people not to mess things up
too badly; and a chance of some mishaps to be noticed quicker, with a
little help from your friends.
