using a mouse effectively, yet I'm no keyboard fanatic:
I have a marble mouse placed in front of my right
hand's resting position and I use it for quick
navigation,for scrolling and for click-pasting even in
Vim (gvim in my case).

given up on remapping everything around early on hjkl
don't make much sense, so I use ←↓↑→ which happen to be
right above said mouse. Besides I can't effectively use
my pinky fingers! I don't think I do things wrong, nor
is it right for me only because of my disability. I'm
doing what works best for me. Period.
I think I'll do this though, even though I mostly hardwrap:
map <C-Down> gj
map <C-Up> gk
