Recently I am doing a lot of blog commenting and finding .edu .gov links because I am burnt out after rewriting for articles for AJP, and I have found out that sometimes it really depends on the owner of the blog.
As long as you don't use your keywords as your name, use an e-mail which they can see is really genuine, and type at least 1 paragraph with 3 lines which is relevant to the post, you can sometimes get away by posting your link as your signature, like talk soon/cheers ( link )
and yes it is probably more a lot more work, so i would recommend only wasting your time if the site is a high PR one or is an .edu or .gov site.
as for .edu and .gov sites, you would find that most of the sites that need comments to be approved have actually been abandoned for some time... and those that auto approve have been spammed to death by a lot of other people (lol!!!)
as for whether the links will stick or not, well, Im not too sure about that, but a link is still a link to me..
why dont you try it for yourself to see whether its easy to get your comments accepted a not with your links? :)
After you do it often enough, you will have a rough idea the moment you see the blog to whether it is worth wasting your time on to comment for a link or not.. at least to me... (some .edu , .gov sites require you to create a new account, and then verify your email with the unique password they sent you, then and you have to change your password for the first time..oh the pain, but yay its auto approve)
