IMO, if SETI gets a response, which I've read rumored that they have before, that they would likely never be allowed to release the info. Since ET visitation is more than likely already happening, such endeavors are superfluous anyway.

It's not because of the long distances in space in my belief. Two possible reasons.
One, we are using radio and to aliens, radio is probably a very ancient technology to them and they cannot pick up the radio signal.
Two and probably the most likely reason. If you were a highly advanced alien, would you respond to a 'primative' planet that still has wars over countries, pollution, fossil fuels, nuclear weapons, and discrimation towards people of different religions and races? Not to mention that you want to meet all the people of Earth but the governments won't let you.
Answer, likely not. At least not until the planet is 'ready'.
