Motivation: I got my manuscript accepted without any need for revisions. However, it took 11 months for Lubrication Science to arrive to this verdict. I sent emails to the Associated Editor three times to complain about the long review duration. She would send the apologizing messages back every time.

Motivation: It took more than half year to get the first batch of reviews. Then the second round of review involved only one reviewer, who was asking several unreasonable requests. One of them was to supply spectra, showing the absence of peaks despite our mentioning in the text that no signal was detected. Later the Editor overruled the requests of that reviewer.
