It's mostly because about 70% of the PvPers have an industrial alt with maxed mining skills. Someone who is just a miner is of no real use for a corp unless it's a hisec tech 1 production corp or a starting corp.

Anything beyond that and they're better off recruiting a guy with guns that can supply himself with isk and/or can help out in big corp operations with his alt.

When I was in my old corp, we used to have corp-wide mining operations every half year or so. What you'd see was 10 alts of the corp's core PvPers in Covetors stripping a few systems in 0.0 while the guys without an alt would haul or tank rats.

That is, IMO, the major reason why pure miners are looked down upon.
Apparently, they never met a Quantar before.

Besides, its a game, not an exercise in efficiency.
