Latest review

First review round: 4.3 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Drawn back.

We decided not to resubmit the manuscript because we did not get the complete reviews from the reviewers on the second revision. When I asked the editor to send me the missing files, he included comments from one of the reviewers that was to the editor only, and the comments indicated that the reviewer intended to never accept our paper. Thus, we felt that revising the manuscript was not worth our time.
