Outcome: Rejected (im.).

25 days for a desk rejection! I understand that it may be difficult to give speedy decisions for all authors, but this was unacceptable. A journal that pays its staff should be able to judge the suitability of the article within a few minutes... I asked why it was taking so long, if the article was not in peer review and never received an answer... The handling editor wasn't connected to my field, by a long shot and obviously did not take any real time to read the paper. They suggested transfer to scientific reports. Very displeased with the handling and do not recommend subjecting yourself to this nonsense.
