I think this 'strategy' (though it doesn't have an effect big enough for me myself to want to try it) is alright, but just make sure you vary your bets absolutely randomly. If you end up betting more with big hands and less with more marginal ones (and vice versa), then you're just telegraphing the strength of your hands.
I was talking more about after the flop then preflop, Like you know there is a draw out and some guy bets pot size because he dosent take the time to figure out what he should bet. Like say pot is like $60 and someone bets like $72.50 or like $57.99 or something like that. It would make the player stop and be like wait a minute why would he bet that amount? or gezzz this guy must be some donkey Im going to steal from him now because he dosent have a clue what he is doing then he trys to steal and you show him nuts.
its just another option when trying to confuse your opponents, I do this live also I will bet some silly ass amount in my $1/$2 game. I cant do it in $2/$5 because your bet amounts have to be in fives but in 1/2 I can throw $27 in there if I want to. I underbet alot to induce bluffs, its amazing how people will play back at you if you show weakness. Its the same concept act like you dont have a clue and they will try to bluff you.
