Motivation: Very quick editorial response. Reason for rejection was: "Although we appreciate that the reported new findings are likely to be of interest to others working in the field, I am afraid we do not feel that the findings represent the kind of significant new insights that would warrant publication in Genome Biology, which is aimed at a broad readership of biologists."

Rejected 2013
Motivation: It was extremely slow (4 months per round) getting reviews back every time, even though we always submitted our revisions in less than a month. In the end we were rejected "because the process had gone on for so long", even though the slow-down was not on our end. We also only had a single reviewer every time, which I have never experienced before or since. I found the treatment to be unfair and disrespectful of our time.
