Me too. I have read that EC is competitive when the fitness function is
riddled with discontinuities though, so it may still be useful.
As an aside, I also found a lot of the folklore surrounding more conventional
optimization algorithms to be completely wrong in practice (at least in the
context of molecular dynamics).
