I'm an amateur astronomer from Germany and of course a dedicated SETI-"User". Why don't you visit www.sternwarte-peterberg.de to get to know more about our observatory?

Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I think extraterrestrial life exists, has never been to earth and we won't find it within the next several years. Nevertheless SETI is an interesting project which deserves support. As long as we don't really know what is "space", we should not bother ourselves with sending any signals "out".
