I found that my alt key is bound to "+strafe" and it let's me move around with my mouse ... kinda. I just want to know if there's any use for this or if it's just funny gld source relic.

it's very useful in surf. You can set your cl_yawspeed (which controls how fast you turn) to whatever value you want, with 260 being the default. You generally bind a key or button to +left and +right and use them for tighter turns. It's very useful since most surfers can barely 180 on their mousemat

i think you guys are thinking of +left and +right. +strafe locks your camera, and moving your mouse moves your character so long as you have the +strafe key held.

i don't think anyone has gotten banned because of it but it is technically against the rules

Examples of banned scripts:
Bunnyhop script
Panic script †
Charge Turn script (as well as using peripherals to perform sharper turn angles) †
Turn scripts (such as 180* or panic scripts, as well as yaw/pitch binds) †

† = Impact is based on the situation and amount of times abused. For example, scripts randomly clicked with no one around versus used in front of the enemy team, or used once on accident with no one around versus used many times throughout the duration of the game.

On a similar note, +movedown will slow your character ever so slightly when moving around normally. Not sure but I think it has something to do with swimming. It's only useful if you want to trick people into thinking you're a spy on scout.

im fairly certain that +strafe defaults to left alt but nobody knows about it or how to use it

ive only ever used it to slow waddle to give other players a how moment because its otherwise pretty useless

Yeah, it's default bound to ALT, and it's very, very useless.
