If new ‘Earth-like’ planet harbours life, should we communicate with it?

Sure, we’re a long ways off from figuring out any kind of practical interstellar travel, but just think about it: if it turns out to be only a short distance away from us (relatively speaking), and further examination shows that it has a very good chance of having life, think of the potential for sending a message there! There’s risks involved with that, certainly, but there has been some suggestion that game-theory and the “prisoner’s dilemma” scenario offer some key insight into this — that we should take the risk to send out messages (although only a few, and very selectively), because the potential benefits far outweighs the risks involved.
…So even though communicating with another Planet World, if this could happen, would seem exhilarating! THE PRACTICALITY OF THIS INDICATES THAT IT WOULD NOT BE ADVISABLE!
…WHY WOULD YOU EXPECT ANOTHER PLANET WORLD BEINGS TO BE OUR SAVIORS OR TO BETTER US IN ANY WAY? IN THIS IS THE REALITY TRUTH!
…IF WE DO NOT BETTER OURSELVES AND THIS WORLD, WHY EXPECT OTHERS TO DO SO…? ASHOLES…!
…AND DO NOT COUNT IN BEING THE “CONQUERORS”…!
…AGAIN the logic is, what you are not, and claim that PURE LOGIC cannot be for, how can you expect from another World Beings to be for you…? It is more probable for them to be more intelligent! WHAT IS AT 5 TO 100 LIGHT YEARS AWAY, HAS NOT COMMUNICATED, BECAUSE OF BEING MORE INTELLIGENT OR DUMBER! AND EITHER WAY OF NO BENEFIT FOR US! STUPID NASA…!
…HEAVEN IS HERE, ASHOLES…!
…You have 1Billion humans hungry and poor as slaves here on Earth and you think you can handle other beings of another Planet…? ABSURD…!
…Somebody said, with Atomic Bombs, humans are invincible! YEAH, whilst you can deploy them! You would have to have Atomic bombs set up on ground for trap attacks or self destruction…! DO DO BIRDS…!
