    Yeah, maybe we just disgust them.  :-)

    Possible, I suppose, but unlikely.  We're disgusted by some of our own species, it's highly probable that any aliens (including us) will be used to that idea when we meet others.  Even if they are meat.

    I find the alternate technology idea more likely, or the fact that we encode many of our data streams to the point that we'd have trouble picking them out.

    Plus the fact that even our radio telescopes would only see Earth's transmissions as intelligible for less than half a light year.

    Fermi's Paradox is an interesting idea, but at this point it isn't much of a paradox.  We don't have enough data yet.
