Now as to the notion that the crz players are stealing your resources, this is reality only because not enough people on your realm choose to gather the resources. Lets say your server had 1000 players, and a high pop one had 10000 players. If just 30 of your realms players chose to gather resources in the same zone, there would be no CRZ for that zone on your server. The reason you have so much competition from other realms is because not enough players on your realm are motivated enough to go after your own resources. The laziness of players on your realm should not be an excuse to horde resoures from players on other realms who would love to be gathering resources, but are experiencing ridiculous competition from players from their own realm (regardless of whether or not this helps the realms economy).
