Motivation: In the first round we had enthusiastic comments from 2 reviewers and suggestions for basic minor revisions. Editor encouraged revisions ( "we see real strengths in your manuscript") and after revisions both the two reviewers accepted the paper. However the editor decided to not publish the paper, denied to send us the referee reports for the revised manuscript ("The reviewers recommended acceptance of your resubmitted manuscript" is the only thing I was allowed to know). Adduced reasons were, in my opinion, insignificant and surely tardive!
Basically I, my co-author and the two reviewers wasted our time!!! .

Motivation: Despite the quality of the reviews, it took extremely long to get even a first decision.
