Pubs are just antisocial.

Do you have science to back that up?

Well... Pub players do seem friendlier. Not sure I can back that up, but it seems that way.

I'm in a guild with chapters on both sides and on the Pub side we have never done anything untoward to the Imps. It has never come up. But on the Imp side we have gone out of our way to "get" to the Pubs. I may get some hate for this but, there have been rare occasions where our Imps noticed Pubs gathering for a WB and we gathered in mass to cause havoc with their plans.

It seems to me that when you are playing on the darkside you have a little more licence to be evil in general.

As for talking to the other faction? In my experience, many don't know how to do it. So when I do initiate a crossfaction conversation, they don't know how to respond both figuratively and literally.

I've been playing for over 12 and can tell you you're wrong.

I can also tell you the use of 'always' is where you're at fault. 'Usually' would be correct, but not 'always'. As a general rule, different factions attract different people and promote different behaviors. Yes, there are exceptions, but as a whole this is the case. How many years did WoW have stigmas for one faction or another?

Probably this. As an IA I've noticed Republic players on Ilum, but aside from the odd duel they mostly ignore Imp players. So this is just anecdotal evidence but from what I've seen it happens both ways.
In the Imperial Army, it takes more courage to retreat than to advance.

Open up all planets to all players. Evil pubbers should have access to Korriban, but let one of the do-gooders land there

In EQ the faction system that was developed long before swtor was generations ahead, IMHO.
