OMG got a paper rejected this morning for stupid reasons. Time to appeal... 😡😡😡🤬🤬🤬

It is a situation where there are two small misstatements, literally two sentences which can be trivially revised without changing anything else in the paper, that led to the rejection. 🙄🙄🙄

Let me just also note, however, that editing and reviewing can be a tough job (I do it too), so I'm not raging angry at anyone -- though I am of course naturally annoyed! Hopefully the editor will accept my appeal.

... besides, the gold standard for editors pissing me off is the dude who rejected my paper literally on New Year's Day.
