I should add that it's primarily that I've had a rough/exhausting week and am not keen on doing any kind of service work, especially connected to writing/articles because I only finished the Book Chapter From Hell this past weekend. womp. :(((
... I have been known to have personal vendettas against articles, which is a not good time. I try to think of the animosity as toward the ideas conveyed in the article and not the author as a whole person at least but... being a journal editor is a lot and I'll be happy to take some time of shortly...
@platypus I too have strong feelings about some articles, to the point where I've actually blocked their authors (I really try not to personalize them that much anymore!)
@schomj when you're the issue's coordinating editor 😅 ... but yes, I do never want to engage with one particular person again and hope he'll be salty enough to do likewise.

@schomj oh gosh1!!! at least at that phase you can hopefully not accept? It's rough when it's like "oh this seems interesting" and the article you get is "THE HECK?!??!!?" ... the word satisficing appeared on my radar again tonight and sometimes there is that too as an editor.
