Desires make us unhappy. I want to be rich, I want to be loved etc. It can't be good for us. I posted a question on this forum, and realised I desired an answer, I wanted to communicate to another person. I had to edit that thread... the existence of others isn't of any concern to me, it's just a desire. It's ultimately destructive. Maybe I want people to respond to this thread.... that's so wrong. So why post it? Why pursue that which destroys us? Human nature I guess.
