First review round: 51.3 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Drawn back.

Motivation:
Waiting for one year to get the first decision was a terrible experience. I sent couple emails to the editor about this but every time he sent me the same kind of sentences: second reviewer has not submitted the review report yet and I am going to read it along with the first reviewer's report to get a decision within two weeks. Finally, at the end of a year the editor read it and send a major rev. decision with unreasonable requests from the reviewer. Thus, we decided not to make any revision and withdraw the paper from the journal.
