Motivation: Please note: the original journal decision was "reject and resubmit" due to major revisions needed, but I have reported it here as "revise and resubmit". I was pleasantly surprised with the relatively quick turn-around time of the resubmitted manuscript, and surprised that the editor did not send it back out for review. The revisions were fairly substantial changes to the methods, and the addition of one more analysis, but none of it substantially changed the results or conclusions. I am impressed with the communication with the editors, the sponsorship of archiving data in Dryad, and the offer of multiple ways to communicate via Twitter, Facebook, blogposts, etc.

Motivation: No real criticisms. The speed to immediate rejection was fast, which is what you want if getting rejected without review.

Motivation: Although the decision after first submission took quite long, the reviewer comments were very thorough and constructive, justifying, to some extent, the long time it took to get to the first decision. Subsequent decisions were made in an acceptable time frame. The editor took on an active role in the review process and clearly read the paper and reviewer comments properly.
