I read the article on route servers, but I am still not really sure why an ISP would dedicate a whole router just so strangers could log onto it and execute commands?

route servers are basically for other ISPs or network administrators to use for troubleshooting problems. By logging into that route server, a network admin could see what type of routes AT&T is using to send and receive traffic. It helps troubleshoot latency or failed routing.
I use them to resolve DNS changes I make to verify they have propigated correctly to an external network. Other than that there isn't much you can do with them.
