Latest review

First review round: 18.9 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Motivation:
The reviews we received were very helpful and to the point. We were therefore highly disappointed when the only reply we received upon submitting a revised version - which we thought addressed the concerns raised in the reviews - was an outright rejection without any motivation whatsoever. Even upon inquiring we received no explanation for the rejection from the editor.
