alexa.com + subdomain

Is there a sense in letting alexa.com crawl my subdomain-website.

I got a website which address is some subdomain of a provider. Alexa.com crawls my site regularly. But is there any benefit for me? Since alexa.com doesn't separate subdomains from its top-level domain. So if you search for subdomain.topleveldomain.com, alexa.com shows only the statistics/reviews of www.topleveldomain.com.
Am I right that there is no benefit for me then? and may I just go ahead and block the alexa.com crawler to save some traffic?

Thanks in advance.

You don't need to allow Alexa to index any portion of your site to "benefit" from Alexa statistics/reviews of your domain. The spider has nothing to do with this. Yes, even WebmasterWorld blocks the Alexa spider.
