Rejected
Motivation: The first Reviewer suggested major revisions and provided a series of useful comments. The third Reviewer was very positive and suggested only minor revisions. The second Reviewer was not happy with our approach, why we did not consider many various possibilities. He (she?) listed many aspects, which should be considered in his view. However, it should be evident for experienced tribologists that nearly all of those aspects would not be significant for our tribotesting conditions and the scope of our investigations. The other Reviewers do not suggest to look into any of those factors, risks or variables. We wrote an email to the Editor regarding such a disparity in evaluations, but he did not reverse the decision to reject.
