Is it evil to make humans think about death?

A much needed public service if you ask me.

Wikipedians clearly don't think about death enough - they do not envision themselves on their deathbed looking back over their life wondering if all that time being dicks, shuffling commas and generally ruining knowledge as we know it, was really a worthwhile existence. They also don't spend much time weighing up the possibility that their addiction can literally shorten their lives in numerous ways, up to and including a violent death at the hands of someone they wrongly assumed was just a user name on a screen.
