Outcome: Rejected (im.).

This is not my first experience with this journal. Four years ago an editor rejected my journal based on a referee report concerning SOMEONE ELSE'S paper. When I complained he apologized and told me to wait. Three months later I got a rejection again based on a different referee report concerning somebody ELSE'S manuscript again. This time the paper was simply rejected because it contained no empirical part. However, I can cite several papers in this same journal where the published papers contained no empirical either. Interestingly, in both cases my paper was handled by the same editor. I doubt if I will ever submit my paper to this journal again.
