Motivation: The review process was quite slow, with 7 months for the first round of reviews and 3.5 months for the revisions. Given that the revisions weren't even sent out to reviewers, they were just sitting on his/her desk that whole time!

The redeeming qualities were the managing editor, who was helpful, responsive, and sympathetic to the delays; and one of the two reviewers, which was insightful and improved the manuscript. I enjoy reading this journal, but likely will try to avoid publishing there again (at least until after I get tenure) due to the extremely slow turnaround time.
