Dear Editor of Journal,
I find it interesting to review the manuscripts of ours that you have rejected on impact and quality grounds* over the past several years. We quite naturally found publication homes elsewhere for these manuscripts, this is how the system works. No harm, no foul. In none of these cases, I will note, was the manuscript radically changed in a way that would fundamentally alter the review of quality or impact as reflected in your reviewer's comments. Yet I note that these papers have been cited in excess, sometimes far in excess, of your Journal's Impact Factor. Given what we know about the skew in citations distributions which contribute to a JIF, well, this positions our papers quite favorably within the distribution of manuscripts you chose to accept.
This suggests to me there is something very wrong with your review process insofar as it attempts to evaluate quality and predict impact.
*journal fit is another matter entirely. I am not talking about those complaints.
