Remember that Evolution MS that was all but accepted?

Well, now its rejected. In one of the worst experiences as an author I’ve ever had, a paper that was provisionally accepted pending minor revisions is now rejected. All because the AE (I shall refrain from naming the person who works on daphnia on the AE board of Evolution) and the Handling Editor couldn’t fathom working with us (or it appears, with each other) after having submitted us to further external review after provisional acceptance. Oh well, what a waste of the referee communities time.

It will be a better paper because of them, but they won’t have it.
