Motivation: After 7 weeks under review, the online portal stated 'Awaiting Final Decision' but a day later it was sent back out to more reviewer(s). I felt that there was little need for 4 reviewers. The inclusion of a fourth reviewer did not help improve the manuscript substantially and it only slowed down the review process. Three reviewers would have been plenty. Moreover, at least two of the reviewers did not seem to read the manuscript thoroughly as they asked questions that were clearly addressed in the original manuscript.
