Why or why not? Personally, I'd think about it.
Would you live in a house built on the remains of a graveyard

Um, no. Totally disrespectful towards the dead.

Here in LA, one of the local Catholic high schools is built on a former cemetery. I think their mascot is a ghost.
Over in Eagle Rock, the old Sav-On Shopping center sits a top a former cemetery. There used to be a plaque commemorating the site, but a KFC is now built on the spot where the plaque used to be.

PS -- I am not sure if it is all of California or only LA County, but the rules for cemeteries are far different from those in the east, where burial grounds are forever.
Here, the land is made available for development 100 years after the last body is interred.

My 'rents house, like others in the neighborhood was likely built on an old Indian burial site. I think that may explain sightings of an apparition and weirdnesses like intense, damaging wind storms limited to the immediate area. It was a fairly awful place for behavior of the occupants compared to another house we lived in, too.

Why not? Cemeteries make for good neighbors (though more usually next door than on top of).
There's a slave cemetery and a pet cemetery and a churchyard cemetery on or adjacent my property.

I do have a former graveyard on my property (I can't bring myself to call it "the remains"). The bodies are still there. But not directly under my house; they're about half a mile away. (It's a fairly large piece of land.)

I think if "ghosts" exist, the very LAST PLACE they're going to be is in a cemetery. They're going to be where they lived or died or spooking people they have vengeance of or are protective of.
Why would a cemetery, like a funeral home be haunted, even if ghosts existed? (Which, they don't.)

I wouldn't mind living near a cemetery, but I would not want to live near or on a cemetery where the graves have been disturbed.
I saw that episode of Unsolved Mysteries where the houses were built on top of an old slave cemetery and the homes were plagued with restless spirits of the disturbed dead.

We have recently move from a house in Aylesbury that was the site of a battle in the English civil war and was a mass grave that they removed the bones of 247 dead soldiers before they developed the land. However we felt constantly drained all the time, had many days off sick in that year and the cats were going mad all the time. We also have recordings of orbs down the stair case from one Christmas morning on video. All in all im glad we have moved.

No. It would be a foolish decision.

I'm sure we all live in houses built over the remains of dead people.

I did, briefly, as a child. The house, in fact, the entire block that was built atop a cemetery still exists, and it's right around the corner from me. When the houses were built, no one would buy any of them, due to superstitious fear. My grandmother, a very no-nonsense kinda' gal, bought the first house. Once she wasn't devoured by hell-demons, the remaining houses sold. It was never creepy. I just wish I could find some information about that cemetery.

Every breath you take contains air molecules that once were in now-dead people's lungs.

NO, not if its proven to be a graveyard.

We aren't breathing dead people's air, we are breathing the exhale of plants. We use oxygen,they use carbon dioxide.

This is true. Not only is it quiet (obviously) but certain people who are known to have a tendency toward criminal activity (*cough*) are well-known to be scared shitless of walking through a cemetary at night so you are less likely to be the target of a home invasion/robbery.
And that's all I'm fucking saying.

All houses are built on the remains of a graveyard. Do you know what fossils are? They're the remains of some poor animal that was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
