create a new chat channel and invite your corpies into it and tel everyone to drop roles and leave the corp until the war dec is over. Keep communicating through the chat channel.

Have two bases of operation, where you can jump clone to pretty quick, and make sure they are far apart. Odds are they wont want to move 35 jumps just to try to get one kill.

Also stretch local down the side of the screen so you can see at all times everyone there and warp to a safe when reds come.

High sec war deccers want 1 thing
Killboard stats.
If you don't give them it, they leave fast.
Also completely ignore all random convos and mails demanding money,
most of them have very short attention spans and will get bored quickly.

They probably are using locator agents to find you so...
Instead of logging, just have you and your buddies sit in random systems at a safe cloaked. They will think you are ratting and try to find you.
Let them spend hours running around for nothing.

have out of corp alt's and accounts that you can run missions on, mine or trade with.
Or just take the fight and fight them off.

1. alt
2. another alt
3. plex
4. mission with the corp, take points
5. number 5.. for the hell of it

could probably think of another 1, like trading for eg: not many others, except for maybe missioning in lowsec, plexing in a T3 @ other end of new eden, there is isn't many things u can do besides these unfortunatly... and of course bringing the wardec to their knees and going all out pew pew.. i mean a gang attack on a freighter might help iskies tho, but that's it, besides selling toons, leaving corp, making new corp, becoming brutal and taking the war dec in your stride..

im pretty new, but as you can see, your options are rather limited... only a couple of dozen things u can do really.... RazzRazz

NPC 0.0. Wardec's don't do anything, if local is empty feel free to do stuff, if it's not. Move to a different system. Stealth bomber belt ratting works better than you think it would....

Running around with an cloaky hauler on some of the mega battlefields just looting mods and/or salvaging t2 ships can be very profitable, requires timing from luck or intel though as well as a sense of when it's safe and when it isn't.

OR you create a lot of buy orders for things that other people loot from those battle fields.

OR you just play market games taking the current war's effect into cosideration.

Let the reds sit outside and laugh because they think they're actually bothering you, while your actually racking the cash.

get more used to the market, can make billions without ever undocking ugh
(I find trading to be quite boring, I get bored after updating a few market orders at a time)

head to a trade up, set up some buy orders wait for them to fill, when they fill turn around and sell them for more! look for high volumes and high margins. people have tried to go from the starting 5,000 isk to 1,000,000,000 isk in a month. http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=684047&page=1 here is one of the more famous attempts.

and you can always use a courier contract to move the goods and either remote sell, transfer to a trade alt, jump clone, or just ninja over and sell yourself. people will take hub to hub couriers for peanuts (just make sure to put a proper collateral on it!)

I know this sounds crazy, but maybe, just maybe they're fighting you because you're such easy targets. If you grow a pair and get some cheap PvP fitted ships and fight back you might not be worth it anymore.
