What it does do is make the time you see on the posts to be correct for "now." For instance, I am posting this at 7:39 PM Eastern DST. If you have not adjusted your Eastern GMT to be -4, you'll see 6:39 PM on your screen at the post header. Those in other time zones may see varying results. Change the GMT -5 to GMT -4 and you see the correct time of the post in relation to when you read it, at least for folks in the Eastern Time Zone.
When I worked communications in the US Army, we used GMT -0 no matter where we were located in the world. That way all messages, log entries, whatever were all on matching time at all times. Every military comm center I ever saw always had two clocks: Local & GMT.
