First review round: 8.7 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

The first round of reviews was mixed: one favourable and one against. The one against was poorly written and misunderstood the nature of the paper showing to be a rushed work. We answered explaining point by point why we did what. The second round of reviews discounted our answers and the new reviewers sidelined with the first negative reviewer without taking in account our responses to the first negative reviewer. The favourable reviewer had been removed by the reviewing team while the first negative reviewer was retained in the reviewing team. It was a lengthy and unfair process, there was no engagement on part of the reviewers or the editors with our answers to first round negative reviewer's criticism.
