I keep mine simply because i know many tricks involving jokers
I take them out straight away with ad cards. I don't like them at all. But I still keep them.
I keep them in. Why not? They do no harm. Apart from that time they completely messed up that carefully prepared stack I was using.
I allways rip them immediatly!
You paid for the deck; and therefore paid for the jokers -- I would not rip them as it's tantamount to ripping money. There are some nice effects and tricks that can be done with them. Joker are underused and underrated, but the audiences for whom I perform seem to love them.
I keep my jokers because
1. I just like them
2. I do a few tricks using them
3. If you, for example, want to do a color change, and you double lift to a joker by accident, you can improvise awesomly like "You know how jokers are actually wild cards in most card-games, well watch this.."
I love my jokers. Love to use them in 2 card monte, but I'm planning on making a deck out of jokers. 52 jokers for flourishing? Doesn't get much more epic than that!
