First review round: 15.2 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Very low quality and superficial referee comments, which clearly exposed that the referees did not bother to thoroughly read the paper, let alone try to understand it. Comments provided no indication of how the paper could be developed in order to make it publishable. Out of the nine (positive and negative) reviews I have received thus far, this one was clearly and by far the least helpful one. A desk reject in this case would have been better and would have safed me several months time.
