Abstract. Using the proposed classification criteria, all known interstellar radio messages are divided into two essentially different groups scientifically-based messages and pseudo-messages. Imitation of interstellar transmissions by most of the exo-civilizations can cause the Great Silence.

Keywords: interstellar radio messages, SETI, METI, Great Silence.
