Grenades being useless seriously pisses me off.

As just a trap, its worthless and encourages camping or at least hanging back to actually blow up the thing outside of leaving it on objectives (which everyone knows of by now). Besides, you're not looking at the C4's weaknesses.
It has the slowest flight time. Sure, it can go farther than before, but for maximum distance the person has to wait several seconds, then blow it. You can flee from it during that time. Forcing it to blow up quickly is also a few seconds where the person does not have control of their aim unless they're clawing.
When its near point blank, that's the range the C4 is supposed to be the better lethal. Nobody had a problem with C4 in the previous CoD games. It was always one of the more powerful explosives, particularly at that range. The only thing more difficult to dodge then a point blank C4 was/is a perfectly cooked frag. The C4 had its use, the Frags had their use, and the Semtex... kinda became meh since MW2 outside of killing shield users.
The problem is the maps. They are so small, so clustered, that there are rarely maps where the ability to toss/cook frags over long distances is worth more than C4's close range power. Somebody is going to bump into you as you're aiming the frag and mow you down. All this leaves us with is a few quirky spots on some maps, like the chute in Hijacked that connects B Flag and the basement, where the frag has a use. Instead of the small maps making all explosives better, it nerfs frags and semtex, while buffing C4.
And so begins a tale of vengeance and betrayal. Destiny by sinner sought. Tragedy by power wrought. Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume.
I only play DOM and I've recently switched from C4 to Semtex. Best move I ever made.
I'm sure Frags are just as good, I'm just not as good with them. Plus I still like the ability to be able to cancel a nade toss which you cannot do with frags.
Point being, it's most likely not the nades, but where you're throwing them.

A lot of times in S&D or even in Dom, I'll toss a C4 in the area I'm covering in S&D, or in front of the flag on Dom. So as I'm close to capping it, I'll just detonate the C4 and know if someone is there.
