Thanks for posting the URL. Fascinating paper. Totally ignores 2
very important aspects of the problem, not surprising for
Astronomers and SETI Cultists.Note References.

The first is the enormous amount of evidence that aliens have
been visiting and been observed all over Earth, on the ground
and in the sky, by radar and by eye, up close and personal,and
far away. On film and on radar.Ths Cosmic Watergate is easy to
demonstrate. SETI provides NO Evidence of ETI.

Secondly. There seems no recognition that Earthlings are a clear
and present danger to the neighborhood. Killed 50 million in WW
2 ansd destroyed 1700 cities. Have mastered nuclear fusion,
exploded many H Bombs. First released energy of 10 Million tons
of TNT. We can soon get to the stars with our brand of
friendship. Hostility. We have nobody who speaks for the planet.
Spend a trillion$ this year on military 25,000 children die
daily of preventable disease or starvation.

Obviously these would be important to ETI and should be to us.
How naive can one get.
