Motivation: Reviews were largely fair and raised important questions. The editor was quick with decisions after the reviews were in or after we resubmitted our revisions.
Motivation: This paper essentially disappeared without trace for 8 months after I submitted it. I would periodically email the journal staff about it and they'd say that the action editor was still looking for reviewers. After 8 months, I emailed the action editor directly to say (very politely) that it was getting a bit ridiculous now. They were very apologetic and said that they only had one review but could make a decision based on that. They asked for minor revisions, which we completed within a few days. The paper was accepted without a second round of review, to our relief.
