Of course the other issue we have is that being such a vulnerable species, having limited technology and living on a planet still full of rare, natural resources do we really want to advertise to the rest of the universe 'here we are?' Anyone who picks up our signal, and is capable of reacting to it, will obviously be far more advanced than ourselves, and we would very likely be no match for it if it wasn't benevolent.

It probably also doesn't help that we are actively demonstrating that we are not very good custodians of such valuable resources. I'm really not sure how any intelligent alien species would regard us in this respect.
