I guess that one of the reasons people that show it because their traffic on Alexa rank isn't anything to brag about. It could also be that it is less popular metric and their visitors maybe don't know/care about it so they don't see a reason to use it.

I personally don't like it because it has some flaws that make it unreliable for checking site's authority. I would consider showing it only if you think it could bring more trustworthiness to the site. And for that to be the case, your audience should be familiar with that metric but not with the details of how it is calculated.

I probably missed some pros and cons so I hope someone with more experience can give you a different point of view :)

Alexa doesnt matter much. Its metrics are somewhat vogue. So I prefer not to use it on my website.
