I'm not sure I see the point of your post other than to run other people down and make yourself feel smug and superior.
Ah to be always right, what a feeling that must be.
Even if this does turn out a hoax,
which it seems is quite probable there is no reason why disclosure wouldn't come from a whistle-blower on the net.
The rise of the internet means it is much easier than it used to be for leaks to quickly find themselves a global audience.
There's nothing irrational in believing that this could have been the case here regardless of the final truth or otherwise of the claim.

Personal background Radio Astronomer working on government based projects in Europe, South America and the USA. Studied in Germany at well known university in Bavaria. Post Doctoral degree in Astrophysics, Astronomy, Quantum Physics and Mathematics. Born in Jonkoping / Sweden in 1965, but presently living in South Africa. Participated in various SETI, NASA and ESA programs. Great admirer of Gill Tarter and of he SETI Institute and Carl Sagan a NASA consultant on Astrophysics. Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home I believe that there is life out there. In this awesomely big universe / multiverse mankind is extremely arrogant to think that he is the only intelligent lifeform. SETI is the most Intelligent project ever started since we as a human race evolved out of the primordial mist. I believe we should concentrate our efforts and use our radio telescope time to study nearby stars such as Alpha and Proxima Centauri, Epsilon Bootes, Epsilon Eridani, Alpha Draconis and Mintaka. When we eventually find life you can take my word for it, it will be one of these. Already had some evidence that these could be the candidates. You heard it here first! So SETI check this out PLEASE!

-Wayne Herschel- ◄◄◄BREAKING NEWS►►► update#4 - 11 minutes ago from Judy at NASA... "Wayne, it would seem as if this signal is not perse directed at us as a Species, but that we are now listening in on a Interstellar communication between civilisations on the Target stars I had mentioned. Only +- 1% of the signal seems modulated and the... rest seems to be an advance Binary code of sorts. There are so many subcarriers bundled into this signal. I dont think we have the technology on our planet at present to do this form of communication at this frequencies. We have still not reached any results, far from it. However I can say with confidence it is not Local, but definitely an Intelligence from beyond our Solar System. Wonder why SETI USA has not commented on anything yet. We are going to Stealth mode from now on, however I will keep you posted.
I wouldn't read it again, if I had it to do over again.
