How fast can you get? At what cost?

According to my inbox, one of the MDPI journals invited me to review an article that’s well outside my expertise on 29 December, 10:40 am. On 30 December, 3:00 am, I got a reminder (i.e., less than 24 hours later). On 1 January, 5:00 am, my invitation to review was cancelled because they have “received sufficient peer-review reports from other referees”.

I realize speed in itself has become a valued indicator to some, but at what cost? Whatever, I enjoyed my holidays…
