First review round: 10.7 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Drawn back.

Sorry, but here was no checkbox for the possibility that the editor did never answer after two revisions (I put there the date when the paper was withdrawn). I should explain - the first reviewer was constructive, we followed his/her suggestions, the paper improved, he/she did not have further comments; the second reviewer had mostly comments that we could not accept, he was not satisfied with our explanations. Probably the Editor could not decide and he never informed us. After 27.6 weeks and four unanswered e-mails to the Editorial Office we withdrew the paper.
