    Yer they still work but you do need quite a lot more and also they are harder to index now, as for spammy links thats blog comments i would say

    They still work as far as Google is concerned. The main issue is it is now much harder to get profile links to "stick" - web 2.0 sites are getting much stricter at weeding out the spam.

    I saw a pretty big SERP change after creating 100 profile links; so from my experience, yes, they still work.
