While there's never any accounting for the wiles of subjectivity, I find it amazing that there wouldn't be some kind of consensus on a skyscraper geek site that the only cities on that list with beautiful skylines are New York, San Francisco and Hong Kong, while Dubai and Shanghai might be given a mention for their singular uniqueness.

That this might be controversial to someone in Vancouver would appear to be explained by the mentality represented in what you say here:

Erm, you've been presented by one list compiled by a mostly brain-free media intern working in content generation for the internet, and people who have a layperson's interest in skyscrapers and architecture have objected to it.
