Because you have the unenviable choice between straddling the lanes like you did (and potentially being in between two vehicles going straight ahead), or sitting in the middle of the left lane and blocking cars (and I think it is pretty poor form to filter to the front just to do that).
Huh? You are missing the safest and most courteous choice. Position yourself in the RIGHT lane. (I encounter this situation often and never have any issues. I'd only not filter if the traffic is light, but when it is heavy and I'm moving faster than the cars I do filter.)
Filter forward, position yourself in the right lane. Either keep this position and move left when safe further along the road OR move into the left lane once the left arrow has dissipated and it is safe to do so.
