Attitude towards less-skilled players

I'd like to just say something real quick. I'm by the very definition a novice player, or a beginner. In total, I've played around 10 or 12 games, never having played before, and only ice skating maybe 4 or 5 times with crappy rental skates before that. I admit I'm not great, I can't skate backwards, can't stop worth a ****, but I know where to position myself as I watch a lot of tape.
That being said, what bothers me, and what I don't want, is the people I'm playing with giving me a free ride, and not trying to stop me when I'm on a breakaway, or poke check, and give me open lanes to the net. I can't get better without a challenge. If you see me doing something stupid, please tell me, I won't get mad, I'll learn. Don't be afraid to shove me into the boards either, I enjoy the physical aspect of the game, and I didn't buy pads just to soften my landing when I trip over my own feet.
Anyways, good chat.
