Motivation: Good reviews with fairly quick handling for linguistics. Pragmatic and reasonable editors. All delays were due to me.
Studies in Language Drawn back before first editorial decision after 212 days Drawn back
Motivation: After 7 months our manuscript had still not been sent to reviewers. It was stuck in an administrative vortex from which we could find no escape, so we withdrew the paper.
On the other hand, colleagues have told me that they have published in the same journal without any problems.

Motivation: I got the two reviews in July 2014; both suggested "accept with minor revisions". Then after a full 8 months of waiting, I unexpectedly got an associate editor report with the verdict of "revise and resubmit". This AE had obviously not seen I had already substantially revised the paper. Fortunately it so happened that my revisions addressed virtually all comments, but in all it was one of the weirdest procedures I've seen yet.
