i heard something someone said about possible alien communications that gave me chills and it would make an excellent prompt for a sci-fi story

we finally get a message from aliens. "Stop broadcasting, you're in danger."

and then: silence.

"Keep broadcasting. A little louder, if you can. This will draw Them away from Us, and towards You. Suckers."

what if human civilization was established to do just this?

@Nikolai_Kingsley i can't find it but there's an smbc comic where we finally detect an alien broadcast and it says "Alert: The tastiest life can be found on planet 'Earth', located at these stellar coordinates..."
