It is you, John. Unluckily, many people are not as experienced or kind as you are. To some extent, Poland is in the "Wild West" phase of development even if we have so many new roads, highways and bike lanes. I could see the difference when I was sight-seeing Berlin with a rented electric scooter and rented e-bike. Wherever you ride in the street you feel absolutely safe there. The German people are perfectly organized and they hate "gefährlich" or unsafe situations. They do not hesitate to instruct you in the public you're doing something wrong and they are quick to call the police in. The Polish are mostly reckless and don't want to obey rules. Although it slowly changes for good with ever growing cycling community here.
