Motivation: The handling time was way to long. After the initial submission our manuscript was actually rejected and we were encouraged to resubmit. However, for the resubmission we just included four more sentences in the manuscript and it felt indeed more like a minor revision. I do think that the reason to reject our manuscript after the first review round was simply to reduce the official total handling time of our manuscript. Now the date of the first revision counts as date of submission and thus the almost 9 weeks of the first review round are just hidden for statistics.

In addition, the reviewer comments were not very helpful and finally the published article is almost the same (except for the four added sentences) as the initially submitted manuscript - just that it took them almost 4 months.
