    Yeah, they work insofar as they hold 'authoirty' and send juice to your site. If they're not spammed to death, I see no reason not to point them at your money-site. You can also use them as Tier 1 and power them up with spam and such.

    You can use them to diversify your backlink profile. They don't have much ranking power these days.

    If its easy to put a link there, probably its being a spamming nest. I don't recommend you point that shit to your moneysite

    You can use them from anchor and platform diversity.

    They would work if your target keyword was a 10 searches per month keyword. In other words, don't attempt to use them to rank anything except extremely low competition keywords or you will be wasting your time.

    They are nothing but a waste of time.

    It's not about the domain extension but the quality of the domain.

    I would rather have one quality .com then have a hundred spammy .org, .gov or edu.

    They are useless for actual rankings.

    May be good to diversify your backlinks profile.
