Latest review

Outcome: Rejected (im.).

Motivation:
The review was rather poor in that many of the points were not inherent faults of the paper but rather issues that could have been addressed and revised, if given the appropriate time/space to do so. Thus the decision sounded more subjective rather than grounded on fair points.
