Rejected
Motivation: My article was rejected after two review rounds. However, I already convinced two of my three reviewers after the first round. In addition, it is my believe that the editor could have known before sending my paper back to the last reviewer that my changes would not satisfy this reviewer and he should have decided to either accept or reject my paper immediately after I resubmitted the second time. Lastly, the quality of some of the arguments of that final revision was very low.
