I don't think OP was trolling.
Look up his posting history in this group.  If you entertain the notion
that he is not a troll in the Usenet sense, he would certainly appear so
in the classical sense when considering the leasurely speed and the
time-limited nature of his comprehension.

The problem is though I really want to understand this,
and to see if it's really as reasonable as is said. And
perhaps, if I (or anyone else) find a problem, then it
may be remedied.

How can I do it without trolling, when questions pop up
in my mind that I want to ask?

"How can I do it without trolling, when questions pop up

The short answer is you can't. -- "Trolling" is asking just about any question that might raise an issue implying disagreement with someone else's fervently held belief.

Either ask your question and ignore the ad hominem attacks or go
buy a dog for a friend. Newsgroups aren't the proper forum for
polite equivocation.

Most accusations of "trolling" come from those persons most ignorant of the subject under discussion. These persons are easily identified from their lack of reference to *verifiable* facts and resulting conclusions drawn therefrom.
