Re: Yes, occasionally. More often grateful for greater DOF.

In general, background blur is often misused to hide wrong focal length or standing in the wrong spot. If the background is distracting, move, or get a different angle on the subject.

Moving is not always an option, and a non-distracting background is not always available.   You can isolate the subject with light too, but that doesn't always cooperate.

You use the tools available to you to best advantage for the situation you're in.  Shallow DOF is one of them.
