Why are aptasia bad?

I seem to stumble across alot of messages on techniques to rid tanks of these, but I haven't been able to discern why they are not wanted? Can someone enlighten me? Does the answer change depending on whether it's a FO, FOWLR, or Reef tank? Is this an issue with Keys LR from liverocks.com? Thanks.

stresco's 2 and 3 are the real reasons. #1 just makes it easier to bring yourself to removing them

Also, to my understanding, neither Aips nor Mojos are native to the gulf of Mexico. So what you have on your keys rock is similarly described as a "rock" anemone. Supposedly they don't spread as fast, but IMO are still a nusance. Oh yeah they are also seemingly a little hardier than even aiptasia. I know I have a couple I has to juice twice to off 'em.
