What if they did???
Actually the most scientific approach to sending a message to intelligent post industrial civilisations in our galaxy would be to use Gravitational waves as a medium for transmitting data.
This could be achieved by any civilisation that is situated reasonably close to the central black hole in our Galaxy (Sagittarius A)
They would have to have enough technology to create small singularities and then fire them at Sagittarius A. This would create a Gravitational wave that then entire Galaxy would be able to detect.
We are actually using Grid Computing at the moment to decipher detected Gravitational waves in an attempt to discover any hidden information.
This is really cutting edge stuff and to get your head around the whole Gravitational wave thing you have to understand space-time and relativity.
Time will tell if we are receiving anything... though I doubt they would say anything even if they did find something.
