I agree such could very well be a possibility.
I'm not sure the "wow" is in the same league and the SETI "wow", but more in line with, "Wow, there's an atmosphere here very similar to some of the
conditions we postulate regarding Earth's Precambrian and Cambrian period of early life development."

Stanton Friedman? The guy that quit nuclear physics because he could make more money working less, by touring around the country, pandering to the
gullible in speaking engagements, telling stories about UFOs?
He did some decent research in his early days, but, after that, he's devolved into just another circus actor that lives off of selling his books on
the subject and getting paid to say the same opinionated thing over and over, still billing himself as a former nuclear physicist though he's spent
more time being a circus clown that he ever spent applying himself to the trade of a physical science.
Sure, let's give weight to someone's opinion who's turned their back on real science in favor of a paycheck made from entertainment in the form of
validating a mythology from a position of illusory authority.
