Accepted
Motivation: The second round of reviews was a conditional accept, asking to do very minor changes so it was OK for me to resubmit a second time. Most importantly, the editor decided to accept the paper despite the fact that one of the reviewers still felt skeptical about the article's argument. This is a good sign for me, i.e. the fact that the Editor is willing to bet on an argument even going against of that annoying reviewer who is not satisfied even after you have made the required changes.

Motivation: The editor decision took quite a long time (3 weeks), which is unfortunate. However, when recieved, the rejection letter was reasoned and informative. Although I (unsurprisingly) do not agree, it does help me prepare the manuscript for the next submission.
