@eurobum: Perhaps you have limited roles to begin with as a new player, but that in no way means you are useless. You can be an asset to your fleet from day one. Anyone who argues otherwise is wrong. A newbro can be in a fully T1 fit tackle frig or ecm frig on day one. I don't know how much you know about the game but a newbro tackling a guy and keeping him on field, jamming him and keeping him from fight, dampening, tracking disrupting, etc. is very useful.
Our corporation is in an alliance founded with the central idea of being about new players and making sure that they have a good entrance into the game and have fun from their first day. Judging by the size of the alliance, which is in the thousands, I'd have to say that they might disagree with your opinion that being a newbro sucks.
Also, I find it kind of strange that you claim that Dave is perpetuating a lie. He is a new player. He is telling you how he doesn't think it sucks. That's pretty cut and dry.
Having multiple accounts is fairly common, but it totally is not necessary. I played for well over a year before I even considered a second account. Even now it isn't used simultaneously with my first account. And have you ever tried multiboxing? It definitely isn't more efficient. Trying to manage multiple clients as one person is not ideal.
