If aliens have any sense after they take a look at this spot, they should fire up their
FTL drive and do one to whence they came.
much safer for them.

how would they read it?
it took the rosetta stone to decypher earth languages, what if said ET had no concept of reading or the ability to do so.
what if they communicate with chemical signals like bugs or something we can't even conceptualize. that being said i would assume most space faring civilizations would have run into this issue, but deciphering english or japanese would be quite the task unless they could download it from a person brain.
not everyone on the net is a sociopath thankfully. maybe that explains who they take.
