I don't know if anyone else addressed this, but in a multiplayer game I hit 'SHIFT' and the '~' key to try and bind a key to a taunt command. I type in this line:

\bind x +taunt
(where x is they key to be bound)

The result is an endless loop of taunting and it seems the only way to stop it is to disable it again. Can anyone help?

Commands with a + in the front are supposed to be ON (+) when you hold down the key, and then turn OFF (-) when you release the key. In your case, the game is not receiving the key release message so it knows to turn taunting off.

My only guess is that you may be binding CAPSLOCK or NUMLOCK to this command, in which case it may consider it ON as long as CAPSLOCK is on. If you bind a regular key, it should only taunt until you release the key.

If you try everything and nothing works, you can bind another key to -taunt which will turn it off. That's just a workaround, it shouldn't stay on normally.
