No "stab at Melbourne" or anywhere else was intended. I just don't like the profusion of cheap-looking antennas. I am not predisposed to disliking antennas or spires (though I prefer buildings without them), but they should ideally befit, aesthetically, the buildings they are crowning (eg. Chrysler).
How is what I wrote petty and insecure? Methinks you need to acquaint yourself with a dictionary.

Moving on...

If no stab was intended, then you should probably look at rewording what you said. It certainly comes across as a petty and insecure stab.

"Petty and insecure" not, but perhaps a little harsh and unobliging. Maybe I should have stayed out of the thread if I had so little positive to convey, but I was under the (obviously false) impression that sober, rational adults can handle opinions they might find objectionable. I assure you, no offence or slight was meant in what I originally wrote.
