"Delays can have serious consequences - for example, the authors being ‘scooped’ by others working in the same area or implications for future grant applications." - This is really important.

Very good explanation about reviewers responsibility. 


a peer reviewer has to balance his critical thinking and sensitivity while making comments as the paper to be published should be brought out with maximum impact and at the same time not much delay. the aim of review should be to augment the value and not topple.

Considering the important role of the reviewer, as is explained very well in this section, "being fair and constructive" is a useful sentence for every reviewer to keep in mind.

I don't know if I'm a bit more patient, ever since I started peer review I'd do it until the final iteration. It gladdens me to go through authors' responses and see how they managed to respond to my criticisms and comments. After all, I stand to gain a lot from that because if I'm a reviewer here I may be an author with other journals.

Delivering a timely report to the Editor is so important both for the author(s) and the Journals. This is because the author(s) might do their activities in a place where they are not living as in a collaborative work, i.e. they use other laboratory facilities and in case the peer reviewers observe, as they are experts, some lab work is missing, the author(s) will get the opportunity to perform and fulfill the gap easily.
