I didn't really get the point of the article.

For years Boeing manuals have said flatly that the control wheel cannot be moved opposite to the direction of trimming motion (the trim motors cut out if it is).... Wrong, it can, and indeed has to, be moved in the opposite direction every time the trim is used; the action is achieved by just relaxing the pressure on the column and allowing to drift back to neutral. It is true that if pressure is applied to the column opposite to the direction of trim, then the trim cuts out
I thought Boeing says you can't trim opposite the direction of yoke movement (from neutral).
