ReverbNation is just another (basically free) tool that musicians have at their disposal. Choose to use it and gain more web presence, or choose not to and honestly, it's probably not going to have any negative effect.

As far as ego stroking and charts goes, whatever. If you're not out there in the trenches, getting dirty, sleeping in your car, playing gigs, then maybe (just maybe) you still have an ego to stroke. Good for you.

As for the rest of us, scraping it out in the real world, our egos have long been traded in for the reality of just trying to get gigs and make people happy.

You do realize we are in a service industry, right? (somewhere between waiter and masseuse). I'm sure ReverbNation fits in there somewhere as well.

ps- They do have some cool touring (map and date based) web plugins.
