Social Life of Law Review Articles Editors

I sent out my article to the law reviews a couple of weeks ago. Among other ding emails, I got a ding email from a journal at midnight on Saturday night and a ding email from a different journal at 10 pm on Friday night. Two possible explanations for the timing of these emails:

1) Articles editors are so overworked that they can’t catch up with their workflow until very late on weekend nights; or

2) Instead of socializing with friends on weekend nights, law review articles editors derive even more enjoyment from sending ding emails and dashing professors’ hopes.

I’m pretty sure that #1 is the better explanation, but I’m beginning to wonder…

UPDATE: Last night I got a ding email at 12:30 am early Saturday morning.
