First review round: 6.1 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Rejected.

In general, the manuscript was processed fast, so the editorial process is quite well organized. But the choose of reviewers was very terrible. Only 1 of 3 referees did really understood the main concepts of the work reported, thus gave relevant comments and asked questions. Other two referees' comments were completely out of point and, at the same time, very critical. One of them said explicitly that he\she is not an expert and did not understand what is a difference with some another well-known paper in our area. So, the editors should have paid much more attention to the process of choosing referees.
