记一次神奇的 Rebuttal 经历

​作者丨信息门下遛狗@知乎（已授权）

CVPR 2021 投稿中的一篇 Rebuttal 经历十分神奇，特此记录下来。

Rebuttal 的时候和合作者仔细考量了一下，首先，我们罗列了以下的事实：

1. 初审中负面评论要改成正面其实很困难，根据以往的经验，只有10\%的论文从SR改为正面评论。
2. 如果最终评分中有负面评论还没完全改正，文章是很难中的。甚至都是正面评论都有可能被拒绝。
3. 给 5 分的审稿人一看就是新手。找出文章的漏洞简单，但是发现文章的价值难。这位审稿人仅凭借一个（自认为是漏洞的）漏洞就直接反手一个 5，切实地说明是个初哥。
4. 给 2 分的审稿人也很让人恼火，而且要小心他看了别人的意见改分数。

Dear AC,

We want to raise attention to AC that reviewer #1 has made some statements against the common-sense in both xxxx and xxxx fields. With his/her efforts, he/she squarely misunderstood the main purpose of this paper and successfully ignored all of our contributions recognized by other reviewers. We question the authority of reviewer #1 and believe that the comments of reviewer #1 are unfair and worthless.

We also want to bring to AC's attention to reviewer #3, whose criticism of our personal language skills is unfair and irresponsible. Reviewer #3 can read and understand our paper without technical questions raised. This proves that our writing at least accurately conveys our ideas. Actually, we have published many papers, but not received similar judgment. The unacceptable'' comment made by this reviewer is unacceptable.

At last, we thank all reviewers and ACs for their time and efforts, regardless of the result of this paper.

Best,

3 月 4 号更新，已经看到 meta review。那个给 5 分的审稿人并没有给出正值的最终评分，并且在审稿意见中坚持自己的看法。万幸 AC 们认为这篇文章值得被接收。
