What is the "commentator" command in Counter-Strike 1.6, and how does it work?
Apparently it works only on non steam servers. If you type
You'll make the game think you are a HLTV viewer and not an actual player on the server. When you type status you won't be seeing your steamID but something HLTV related.
Having a quick read, it seams this is used to unban yourself from said servers.
