Agree. Unless something (a small black hole, neutron star etc ..) will fall
Those giant black holes, have swollen millions of black holes during past
10 billion years. Each. And there are billion of them. Many
such occurrences every year, even every day.
We do not detect those. Why?
As someone said about SETI - listening for droplets, where a Niagara falls
thunder should be!
