To me, it seems pretty simple. You can join the SETI Institute's Team
SETI, and know that your money is helping professional radio astronomers to
do very good science. Or you can join The SETI League, and do good science
yourself (and help other amateurs to do so). Or you can do what I did, and
join both -- cover all bases. After all, I believe SETI is too important
to be done *only* by amateurs, and too easy to be done *only* by the
professionals!
