Motivation: My article was very complex and also a bit speculative when I submitted it. Both reviewer were evidently experts in my field (crystallography) and both found the weak spots of the article. But, both were absolutely polite and VERY CONSTRUCTIVE in their comments. I received from them around 10 pages of text. This shows how much work the reviewers had to spend on my article. Even though their comment cut to the bone, I was quite impressed with the quality of the reviews.
I also want to commend this journal on the speed with which they publish the accepted articles. It took only 6 weeks from acceptance to a printed issue (and full citation).
