Motivation: It is unacceptable to receive two reviews that are shorter than 500 words and of poor quality. It is worrisome that a good journal such as BJPolS accepts such poor quality of reviewers.

So, the reviews were useless and did not even justify rejection, but the editor chose to reject the paper anyway.

Motivation: The editor acknowledged that it took longer than he thought was appropriate but that it was the reviewers fault (what else is new) and said he hoped it wouldn't put me off applying there in the future. The reviews had enough helpful parts in them that I am not displeased with having submitted it. Unfortunately, the 3rd review, which is what held up the entire process, didn't actually seem to read the paper properly (ie I don't see an interaction model, when they are clearly present in the tables).

Motivation: The paper was rejected because its topic did not fit the journal. This was a bit strange as I had reviewed a paper for the journal on the exact same topic.
