I closed my Google Webmaster Tools account 2 years ago after my sites kept getting manual Google quality checks. Once I closed the account the manual quality audits stopped. I don't have anything to hide with my websites but I felt violated by that. I didn't sign up for the account to be under constant scrutiny like some sort of common criminal. If you like being audited constantly by some outsourced control group in India then GWT is the place for you. Do bear in mind that those quality control groups do have access to the ban button, so make sure they don't catch your site during a redesign or a server outage.
