This question already has an answer here:
Assume that the last time that one has contacted the editor of a journal (about 10 months ago) to obtain the progress of submitted manuscript, the editor has said that he will give news as soon as he has some news.
In this circumstance isn't it rude to recontact him again to obtain news from the progress of the manuscript?
Other relevant informations: (1) The editor is very responsive and the journal is reputated.
(2) I have submitted my paper 26 months ago to this journal.
Edit: The question How long after first contact, where editor says "manuscript is still under review", is it okay to enquire again about status of manuscript? is relevant but the difference between my question and that one is that since my last inquiry 10 months has passed but in that question 2 months has passed.
