Accepted
Motivation: The reviewers were not unreasonable. The editors were quite prompt at work, too. The only problem was that when it was first submitted that the paper was not reviewed by anyone for several weeks, which I guess was due to the outbreak of covid-19. Otherwise, the total time from initial submission to final decision of accept would have been less than a year instead of 14 months and 3 weeks. But I still find the experience invaluable, and firmly believe that my manuscript was greatly improved thanks to the reviewers.

Rejected
Motivation: Two R&R were not justified, the editorial decision could have been made faster. Quality of reviews on the second round was low. Process was generally slow.
