Rejected 2021
Motivation: Crazy review process. We got: major revision / major revision / minor revision / it can be accepted after quick fix-ups / REJECTED.

We were very close to the acceptance, and on the penultimate email from the editor Edward Ciaccio we received an email with the following text:

> Your manuscript has been carefully reviewed, and we would be happy to publish it,
> provided that it is revised in accordance with the enclosed reviewers' comments.

The comments were about the improvement of the English grammar of the article. We asked a colleague to perform an English proof-reading and addressed all the changes. Then the editor decided to reject the paper in the end because of few sentences with English mistakes.

I will never submit an article to this journal ever again.

Motivation: The manuscript should be refined for English grammatical structure and phraseology. The manuscript should be polished by an English linguist or language service (note in marked-up copy text where changes are made).
