    Yea thats true u cant get banned by steam from using music spamming programs or changing models and skins. There is one flaw in steams banning policy, which will never get fixed, if u have some intelligence u can reskin dust and various other maps to have fullly transparent, or near transperant walls, u can also skin all player models in bright colours etc

    You can't get banned unless there is a hack on it. However, if you have a custom model or have custom normal maps, you can only join a select few servers because of consistency errors.

    Don't listen to your friend anymore, just go ahead, download some custom skins and enjoy them!

    As far as you're just using custom sounds, skins, models, scripts or textures, Valve will not ban your steam account.

    However, you will not be able to use your custom skins on certain servers, this is due to a consistency restriction set into the server itself. You can still use custom "v" models, but you will have to delete all your "w" models each time you play online.

    You can't get banned for skins or any custom models what so ever unless you can see it through a wall or some thing, so dont worry

    If your running a scripted model sometimes it will interfere with the security and depending on numerous factors it might look like a, whats the word, cheap cover-upper, but i havent heard of that happening since VAC(1)

    HOLY ROFL COPTERS BATMAN!

    anyway about your question. Most serves will give you consistancy errors if you have a custom model but besides that look at the site your posting on and that should answer your question =P

    If you're planning on doing leagues, skins, sounds, sprites, ect. are illegal and will get you banned from most leagues. But for just plain old pubbing nothing can happen.
