Rejected
Motivation: Overall, the review process was timely. The reviewer comments from the first round seemed to lack concrete suggestions for improvement, although the associate editor made an effort to interpret some comments/opinions and rephrase them as suggestions for changes to the manuscript, which was appreciated. The second round of reviews, although received quickly, did not at all acknowledge the changes made to the manuscript except to say that the study findings are not significant enough to publish in the journal. Frankly, if this is the reason for rejection, I would rather the manuscript be rejected outright on the first round so I would be free to submit elsewhere.
