Prior until very recently, the war declaration mechanic meant anyone could declare war on any player-created group. This meant if you wanted to take a half a dozen of your buddies and form a corporation just so you can mine together, any larger group could declare war on you and camp you until you quit playing. This would force people to stay in NPC corporations because you cannot declare war on NPC corps.

CCP finally decided this is not how they want the wardec system to work. Now, a corporation can only have war declared on them if they own a structure in space. Most small corporations have no need for, or enough money, to anchor a structure in space. The idea is if you have structures in space, you should also have the means to replace them if they're destroyed or be able defend them in the first place.
