I wouldn't hinder them getting past me, and might even encourage them to do so. I can't remember ever having a long queue of cars held up behind me
Does it have to be a long queue? How about one or two vehicles? Is it your assumption that your speed is the correct one, and that those going slower or faster than you are wrong? What if there isn't a place for them to safely overtake you? Maybe you're a speed merchant or a holier than thou 'Advanced driver'? Maybe neither, but whatever you are, you are affecting those around you. Do you allow those behind you to control your speed, or do you choose your own?
If the latter, why should other drivers have to conform to your ideas of the correct speed?
