If FTL was true, shouldn't SETI start searching patterns also in neutrino bursts?

    If FTL was true, shouldn't SETI start searching patterns also in neutrino bursts, and not scan as they do now, only electromagnetic radiation? Wouldn't it be wiser for an intelligent species to cut down transmission time, by sending messages using FTL particles?

    After a little more research, shouldn't looking for W bosons at 6.3 Pev be a good starting point?

    I doubt SETI has anywhere close to enough money to do more than search EM.
