I'm 6'3″, 200+ pounds.  People draft behind me all the time.  I usually ignore it and just run my own race.  As far as my drafting off others, I do it if the situation presents itself.  My rule of thumb is that if I draft for over a mile, I offer to take the lead. 

the leader stopped in his tracks and stood there until the “stalker” got the idea.

I saw something similar to this in the Olympics during a cross country ski race (in 2002 I believe).  The leader had slowed a number of times and the second place skier wouldn't pass him.  Finally the leader stopped and made a gesture for the other guy to pass.  The second place skier still didn't pass.  The leader just took off and tried to open a gap.  Sadly I don't remember which of them won the race.
