Accepted
Motivation: Good peer review and easy handling and communication by the editors. Quick publication after the point of acceptance. Seemed to take a long time before the first round of peer review was received.

Drawn back
Motivation: The manuscript engages reviewers who are not remotely associated with the field or the specialization, which makes it impossible to address the reviews. We withdrew our manuscript as the questions from the editor and reviewers were complete waste of our time. The journal does not reply to questions. I would strongly advise against submitting to BMC ID.
