First review round: 13.0 weeks. Overall rating: 0 (very bad). Outcome: Rejected.

My paper was rejected after three R&R recommendations while a very poor paper that I reviewed for this journal was accepted without any of my major concerns addressed. When I notified the editors about this strange decision, they never responded. They simply sent me an invite to review another paper for them... As a reviewer, the process is very opaque as you cannot see what other reviewers have advised.
