What their paper tells us is that any civilization at KIC 8462852 does not use Arecibo-class radio transmitters to broadcast their morning traffic and weather reports. The limits of the search were very high and the target is very far away; if the target civilization has technology similar to RL Earth in 2015 CE, it could not be detected by the ATA, or even the telescopes used by Project Phoenix, unless they were beaming a directional signal in our direction. And, ego aside, why should they do such a thing?
