Backpacks are truly a pain, and not just on airplanes. One possible solution?.....Have the gate agents require passengers to remove their backpacks and carry them in front of them while boarding.

Many museums do not allow people to wear their backpacks on their backs because of the risk of hitting objects or people. I wish it was the same with boarding.

I am a “shover” - if y

I do the same. Push into me, I push into you.
Yeah, I pushed back once, it was VERY satisfying! I agree with you, @GAT ... it's an ugly thought that people have to be TOLD to use some common sense. And while we're at it, how about those dopes that stop dead in a big bunch of people moving fast to bag claim to yap on their phone? I just love to come right up and bellow "EXCUSE ME". How hard is it to step aside to take a phone call?

I also sit in aisle seats and mostly preboard. I lean away from the aisle and keep a close eye in incoming passengers. I have been known to raise my arms and yell if one starts to turn and smack me with their obnoxious backpack.
Some of them really overstuff those things. They can get really wide when they put water bottles etc in the side pockets. Not sure of their awareness, but they seem to be oblivious as the the danger to seated passengers when they turn.
It would be nice if the FAs made them carry them instead of wearing them while boarding.
