First review round: 34.7 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
Very prolonged wait for response (and even then I had to chase them up) and 1 (of 3) reviews was bizarre - exceptionally long, asserting editorial 'rules' not stated anywhere in the author guidance, describing rather commonplace assertions as "offensive" and using caps lock to emphasise where displeased. I felt like I had been trolled, and that the editor should have made some comment on this unusual mode of reviewing (or even simply excluded it and made the decision on the other 2 reviews). The other reviews were measured and helpful. I won't consider publishing here again.
