Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I believe that it is very likely that extraterrestrial life exists but that the universe is so vast and distances so great that it is very unlikely that meaningful contact will happen in my lifetime. Should intelligent life be discovered and contact made it would be the most momentous event in the history of mankind. I do not subscribe to the "Star Wars" notion of interstellar warfare but I do believe great care would need to be taken to ensure that any extraterrestrial organism is safe for life on Earth. That said the opportunity to increase human knowledge is incalculable.
