The New Player FAQ, which explains how the game works for everyone:
5.3 SOME PLAYER JUST SHOT ME; IS THAT ALLOWED?
In EVE Online, any player may attack any other player if they choose to, no matter where they happen to be. This is because EVE Online is essentially a PvP (Player versus Player) game at its core.
The essential core concept of EVE Online is that it is full time PvP in a sandbox environment.
7.2 CAN I AVOID PVP COMPLETELY?
No; there are no systems or locations in New Eden where PvP may be completely avoided.
Your whining, bitching, lying, cheating and twisting words achieves nothing. We will make CCP take down your intel bots. You will suffer from Obsovatory Arrays, because no one is going to shoot the afk cloaker for you. When local is gone, you’re done. There is nothing you can do and your words have no meaning here. Get wrecked, little princess.
