It is entirely an individualistic thing... some do, while others do not. I know some who love it and others who hate it.
I personally enjoy listening and discerning various accents and dialects. I find it intriguing. However, linguistics is one of my personal interests. English accents are especially interesting. I do have a relative in the UK and I LOVE listening to him talk.
