The referee raised entirely new objections, some of which miss crucial and explicit parts of the paper’s argument. The initial comments provided were relatively succinct and easy to address. I had to wait over four months for this second verdict which seems to ignore the fact that I addressed all the initial comments.

One of my best experiences as an author. Good comments from reviewers and the editorial team. Feels like the journal wants to publish papers made better through the review process rather than looking for reasons to reject.
