Rejected
Motivation: Quick turnaround time for the decision, but the decision was utterly unfair - both reviewers had critiques that were easy to fix. We appealed and were granted the appeal, but then did not hear back for over 3 months as the reviewers then never responded. So we withdrew the manuscript completely. Extremely disappointing handling of the manuscript.

Rejected
Motivation: One reviewer gave me constructive advice, but the other wrote somewhat negative emotional comments on the submitted manuscript. Associate editor stated that he also read the manuscript and that the submitted ms was a recycling paper I had published before. However, I was sure that he did not read the ms nor my published paper before ,because the published year he noted was wrong and the analyses and results differed completely.
