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).
