I think the time for digg, stumbleupon etc, is gone. We should think about other ways to promote our sites.
Things has changed now especially in SEO (internet world). We must learn to adapt to changes. Like now, social bookmarking, directory submission and article submission is not anymore effective. The techniques mentioned are most likely to be considered as link scheme now.
