Hi there!

Hmmm...Yes... and as far as I know it can cure any disease, and turn
plumbum into gold.  :-)

Just kidding - but it's really a usefull tool, this blurring. I first
met it even before using the GIMP, for making  drop shadows by hand.

Just the other day, I met someone who would use Gaussian Blur to make
a better "detect edges"  than the filters built with this purpose.

And I certeinly use it to eliminate some of the aliasing when I
enlarge pictures. Just rest certain to set interpolation type to
Cubic, in the
(main)File->Preferences->Enviroment->Scaling  settings. It wil;l
certainly do you more good than gaussian blurring in this case.
