Outcome: Drawn back.

Motivation:
I believe it is completely unacceptable from a BioMed Central journal (charging USD 2,145 for publishing a paper) not to come to even a first editorial decision for 8 months. This happened despite numerous contacts with the editorial office during these months. Also, it was impossible to get into contact with the handling editor; we were able to reach editorial assistants only.
