With roughly a hundred billion stars in the galaxy, a hundred billion galaxies visible, and 1/8th of the planets around our star having a radio capable species seti seemed like a worthwhile proposal. But recent discoveries are proving devastating to the old Drake equation, and its no longer inconceivable to me that we may be completely alone. So I used a system that helped medical research instead. but there is no way I would even consider it on any of my battery powered devices.

Call me cynical, but how long do you think it would be before certain Three Letter Agencies, subverted that system for their own ends?
