Seen plenty of half-walls, both carpeted wood-frame and cinder block/concrete block; a few of the rinks I skate now have them. They can definitely be magnets for the unsteady skaters.
Same here. Our rink had a partial wall about 4' tall for the clinger skaters. The faster skaters always stayed more to the inside.

I did compose a longer note, yet it got trashed by a simple error, and don't care to repeat what I wrote. Time to do something else.

Anyway I wanted to give examples I know, of each of your points with skaters I skate with or have skated with. Sometimes the story turns positive with one of these screwball skaters.

I hope Did not leave the impression that I go against the traffic. I don't. I just turn fowards to backwards and back a lot. Always at traffic speed in the right direction, usually very tight, on toes or heels or jump turn to keep it tight. I'd like to be able to three turn. Sometimes I do a loose mohawk though, if the music is right, but I stay in the direction of traffic and use a big hole or the center. If I try a spin it's in the ceneter.

I haven't done an adult skate for 15 years, my kids and their friends aren't old enough yet. It's no fun skating alone.

What really bothers me are people who are experienced who opt to stop or move as slow as they possibly can on the outside lines of the floor... you don't look cool to the rest of us, only like a poor sole deprived of attention... now go to the middle and stop being a danger to everyone else!

This type of behaviour is acceptable when the person is new or lacking experience, but not when the've been around and caught the "hey everybody look at me" bug.
