First review round: 15.4 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

Motivation:
I contacted the journal after a while. They were always responsive and very polite. Otherwise, I would have given them a 1. After they were contacted, they promised that the review would be done next week, and the next week after that. They asked me to be patient. It was extremely frustrating. I do not know any lab that can afford to wait more than 15 weeks for a manuscript to be reviewed. Their delays ended up causing me problems with my grants and with the university.
