Rejected
Motivation: After 2 rounds of R&R, 5 reviewers, and more than 1.5 years, the article was rejected because one reviewer brought up new critical issues (that s/he had ignored at the previous round) and the other required further revisions. The editor changed his position from "I agree with the sentiment of most reviewers that this has the potential to be a very important paper" to "the prospects of getting the manuscript published at JOP are exceedingly slim" in one round of revisions (and about 6 months). That was a giant waste of time and energy.
