One has to wonder why a leading journal should allow a paper to pass through its QC phase and onto a lengthy review process if the editor is going to then decide, on the basis of a personal reading of said paper, and demonstrating remarkably poor comprehension skills, to reject said paper as gibberish. Well, at least this provides more entertainment than the common practice of rejecting papers without forwarding them to reviewers. One wonders why such editors bother to write such lengthy email rejections, carefully outlining their total misunderstanding of every clear sentence in the paper. Surely they could not have obtained such a high rank in The Patriarchy without perfecting the skill of masking their ignorance, at least to themselves. Anyway, one must carry on.
