Latest review

First review round: 11.6 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

Editor informs after the first round of revision that the comments of reviewer are not available. The rejection was done by the editor even not considering at all the rebuttal. In my long career this was the worst experience at all.
Good process
