Second that!

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. Only on rare occasions a blurred background actually adds something to the picture that would not work when sharp. I see way to much 'lazy' blur in pictures.

When used properly, blur can be great, but in those cases, a Gaussian blur layer will save the day any time.
