As I commented on the blog itself, I agree with 4.5 of these 5 mythbusters.  I still feel it is worth emailing webmasters in  avery taregted way when there are certain links one values above most others.

I left a longer comment about this on the site, but I agree with David that you can still get great links from emailing site owners. The key is to not be a 'link beggar' but to actually provide a good reason for the link. An unconsidered resource, you found a problem with their site that you can help fix by updating an outdated resource, providing guest content, etc.

Yup, agree with emailing. Really depends in what context you are emailing them. If you have something genuine to offer, there is always scope to get a good link.
