First review round: 13.7 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

The editor didn't know about the existence of a fourth reviewer. We had actually received the comments of a fourth reviewer in an extra email one week after the first decision with comments of the first three reviewers. We appealed the decision, but it was still rejected.
