As I said, they deserve another chance.

Why are these fine images frassed? I don't get it.

Hi Beatriz. When there does not seem to be any interest
in my submissions, I will sometimes frass them if it seems that they have no value. As an editor you would be free to frass any images that you felt were of no value. Likewise, as an editor, you should feel free to remove submissions from frass.

No need to frass
Quite often a specimen lays dormant for a long time and is finally identified much later. I know cases that took several years. It isn't lack of interest, just lack of time. You have to be patient, that is all. No need to frass, believe me.
