Drawn back
Motivation: Until the date that I withdrew (6 months later) the online status showed 'awaiting reviewer selection'. Because of this I have emailed the administrator since July. When they bothered to send a tardy reply, it was a stock emails. In July I received "I confirm that your paper's status is still under review. Please note that we are doing our best to communicate the decision to you in a timely manner, however, the reviewers' availability might really affect the actual time lag". After no less than 5 more emails in the ensuing 5 months, the last email (which had to be sent twice before receiving a response) requesting I be informed if any reviews had come in so that I could make an informed decision about whether to withdraw the paper given that the previous journal sat on my paper for 47 weeks before I finally withdrew it. Only then did they decide to ACTUALLY check the status and wrote the following: "Upon checking the status of your paper, I have seen that some of the reviewers failed to respond with the invitations sent to them, while some have declined to review your paper. Therefore, the Editor invite another set of reviewers and waiting for their response to review the paper or not". After realising that it is the official journal of IOM (International Organization for Migration), I am doubly relieved that I've withdrawn it.

This paper has been on hold for 18 months only to have to commence the review process from scratch, yet again.
