I just gave it a try, and after one small jump I found myself being fired on (hurrah for energy shields!) and high-tailed it out of there. I mentioned this in the help channel later and got responses like “Welcome to Eve!” and “High Sec is an illusion.” Still, I survived and was more amused than offended. Maybe they were just scaring me off with smaller weapons than they had at their disposal. I still think it’s not for the casual player, but you can’t be all things to all people.
