First review round: 6.0 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Accepted.

The first and (arguably) second revision clearly improved quality. Thereafter, only incremental improvement(s). Referees made contradictory recommendations, seeded to get lost in irrelevant details, and did not always understand the nomenclature. After the 3rd revision they wanted some request from the first revision reverted (so it appeaed). The editorial office was unhelpful (no decision making power, stonewalled contacting the editor). I googled the editor, sent him an email to his work email (not the editorial email). He responded within 30 min (on a Sunday!!), reviewed all evidence from the 18 months /4 revisions process. It was all the time handled by a sub-editor who did not make a decision, it seemed. We had a conversation over the phone the next day and later the day the Journal sent an acceptance letter. At last a satisfactory outcome and the editor handled it professionally at the end.
