Why am I seeing other servers when mining?

Professions
Haven't played since Lich King. Just decided to level mining. I'm competing for nodes with people from other servers, and it's driving me nuts. Why is this happening? And can I do anything to make it stop? No idea what's going on here.
It's a "feature" called Cross Realm Zones. It's here to stay. You will see a mixture of people from different servers if you are in most zones (not Pandaria as yet) or your home capital. The idea is to populate zones and give the game the feel it had during earlier expansions when people were "out in the world."

The more often nodes are mined, the faster they respawn.
