    In short - Love.

    The editor of a journal makes the final decision, not the reviewers of the
    manuscript. Therefore, if the editor is an expert himself, then he can read
    the author's appeal letters with a positive mindset. Thus, if the editor fells
    in love or sympathy with the author (we are not robots, we cannot separate
    feelings and work), the author can publish many of his papers. Provided that
    the editor will give enough possibilities and the own patience for the author
    to convince him that:

    [A.] manuscripts are error-free and
    [B.] the negatively mood-ed reviewers are simply too skeptical about them.

    For people to believe me, the manuscript must be published in a top journal.
    And for the manuscript to be published in a top journal, people must believe
    me, i.e.\ to pay respect to my authority. This is a closed circle, the golden
    ring of marriage with Miss Success. This is similar to dating a woman in a
    romantic relationship. Nothing helps -- it either works out or not.

    People recognize my work and a lot of it is not published in the top journals.

    You are a winner, I am a loser. We both are without a flaw. Even Albert Einstein, if he would be me, would be rejected for at least 20 years. Because Albert would be a loser.

    I am full of flaws. I have had my worked reviewed and rejected. I considered the reviewers comments, followed up on them, made changes and resubmitted. Sometimes they were accepted, because the changes were correct and necessary.

    You are lucky. You are the winner. I am at a constant loss. Thus, it must continue for many years,
    even if my papers are perfect.

    No. I listened to my reviewers, considered what they told me and made changes where appropriate.

    They were constructive. Mine are destructive, they simply say: "we do not want your paper." No additional information.
