It is interesting that SETI people are upset about Zaitsev and
others sending out signals because that might lead to bad
actions against us on the part of aliens out there. That would
only be possible if the aliens could get here. If they can now,
they could have a very long time ago. This suggests that
searching for alien visitations makes far more sense than
searching for signals. Signals could be coming from devices
whose builders are long gone. The SETI community is not seeking
ETI. It is seeking ET Signals. How dare aliens visit without
sending them messages, therefore taking them off their
self-installed pedestals!!
