Canon should discontinue this

This doesn't even reach the level of mediocre in my opinion. Does it ever get sharp? Try f8, f11, and it's still not that great. The build quality seems about as cheap as any other lens I can think of (wait a minute, the original efs 18-55 kit lens is even worse). In addition, these days, the range of this lens is not tremendously useful IMO. For me personally, a walkaround lens needs to start at 24 on the wide end. To each his own though; plenty of people have a fondness for this lens, and that's fine with me.
