I'm not a new player, but I have always been a "carebear" type, preferring Indy and mining over PVP, staying in High sec space, etc. Well the "Carebear" archtype was finally revealed to be a lie when I got blown up in high sec recently. Also got a 3/4 Billion bounty placed on me for stepping into the wrong public chat room and telling a boy gamerz to shove after he told me to suck his you-know-what.
Just a word of warning to the newbies...there are NO SAFE PLACES in EVE. High sec is a lie, you can get ganked anywhere, there are pirates with multiple accounts that can gank you, get blown up by Concord and have one of their many alts loot your wreck. Some jerk could place a bounty on you just for saying something in a chat room that he doesn't like.
The idea of high sec is a marketing ploy to get more people to try the game, including the lucrative carebear/casuals that don't like high death penalties in MMOs. I will repeat, you can get ganked anywhere in EVE. There are players in the game with dozens of alts, that can do a lot to cause grief for the non-pvp types. If you like PVP, EVE is for you. If your a PVER, you may want to avoid it.
