I've touched a nerve there, haven't i? Sorry about that, it was not the intention. About the picture... well, it's not mine but from xkcd.com. I just though it was adequate to the topic.
And yeah personally thinking, i would help a cause for curing deceases rather than analyzing possible extraterrestrial signals. Then assuming a success, wait at least 2 centuries or more to make contact (or at least send/receive a message from/to us). I won't live that long, without mentioning i would die earlier by cancer or something.
Just going for what it's more probable to success, everyone decides by its own interests.
