I wonder why he/they don't give the SETI-L any credit? :((

To quote in part:

Anyone who's seen the [1997] movie "Contact," based on Carl
Sagan's [1985] novel of the same title, has a good idea of what
the Phoenix team does for a living.

...
The work is frequently dull, but the enticement is enormous.
After all, sooner or later it's bound to happen. The computers
will find what no human ear could hear: a faint whistle, a flute
played against Niagara Falls - conclusive proof that the universe
is home to far more than just us.
