If you pick up a spinning 3 1/2 drive and try to rotate, you will feel
the gyroscopic force. It's not overwhelming, but it is a surprise the
first time it happens to you.

I don't know that it is a bad idea to trigger that opposing force, but
it sure feels like you're doing something wrong when it happens.
