Motivation: The initial response time was adequate but there were 3 rounds of R&Rs including a new fourth reviewer who was added during the second R&R. The fourth reviewer ended up being the biggest pain and forced a third round of meaningless R&Rs. In the last R&R the reviewer was demanding that we make pointless changes almost as if to exert power. I felt the editor should have overridden this final decision. Instead the editor had their own comments throughout the process that were in addition to the reviewer comments. From submission to acceptance it took 12 days shy of a year. Not a great experience.
