Motivation: There was a lot of back and forth between the editor and authors, and it overall improved the quality of the accepted manuscript. Nat Prot is apparently (as admitted by the editor) having done staffing issues at the moment, so the manuscript stalled in a couple of spots during consideration. For instance, in the last round of took 12 days to move from "received" to "under consideration" and even then took longer than expected to reach a final decision with the minimal revisions present in the final resubmission. All in all, the process was fair and produced a better manuscript in the end, but was slowed significantly at times.
