What is the better kind of referee report: a five line acceptance or a two page rejection?
If I get the first type, I tend to feel kind of disappointed. If the referee had only five lines to write, it means that you probably did not have anything interesting to say anyway and may as well not have done it at all.
But if someone takes the time to actually write two pages trying to dump everything on you that they can think of, then you know you are doing something interesting...
