Latest review

Outcome: Drawn back.

Motivation:
The journal timeline is a bit deceiving. They keep returning the manuscript back as "unsubmitted" so each time you revise and resubmit the submission date is a new date. That is why the average review time on the website is 10 days, otherwise, it takes several MONTHS which is not an issue at all. I mean, the goal is to have publications of high quality. But using a "trick" to the keep review time short put me off.
