I know where you got that post from, because I wrote it in response to a very general linkage question about Google.
Take note where the post states "Will give you about 100 points for each listing". This statement is designed to convey to the readers that directory listing carry more weight that any other inbound link. Do not assume all the directories have the same weight.
Keyword embedded links, whether they are insite or inbound do produce better results.
