An interesting perspective was posted in one of the comments. Here is the last paragraph of the second comment.
"The search for complex life may be likened to a search for a needle of specific sharpness in a stack of needles. Such a huge investment of precious astronomical resources for so little benefit!

ETA had written Jack Webb - with Dragnet on the brain. :)
