Gonna post this here, since just now decided to post where the Blue sticky is, but is capped. :
Well, here's my two cents from the CRZ I've experianced so far.
Keep in mind, I must be 'casual', because I can only play after I get home from work, for 3 or so hours, then log/eat/gotobed/rinse/repeat Monday thru Friday - Weekends are when I get to play the most, obviously.
I figured I didn't need 4 JCers anymore, with how JC is done this expansion, so I figured I would level up Herbalism on my mage. It was OK at first, the levels of content up to level 50ish zones farming. Right around when I hit Blasted Lands, all heck broke loose, there were people everywhere, dropping down for same node as me every once in a while, no biggie. Anywho, the point of this part, is, that it ended up taking the good part of 4 evenings to level up my gathering profession (mostly after hitting near-level-60 content), instead of typically one or two evenings.
The biggest pet peeve I have is the lag. I've never lagged in the game, ever, like I do now. By mousing over the clock, I can tell I'm not on my server, which is ~95% of the time (when I'm not in Stormwind/Dalaran, heh). Usually I'm on a West Coast server...umm, I'm On The East Coast for cripes sakes, no wonder the lag!
My favorite spot to hang out and AH is Dalaran. I kid you not, there are now 20+ people at the auctioneers, and so many people in general in Dalaran now, that it seems...sometimes...unplayable it lags so much!
TLDR: I want to be on my own realm so I don't lag so much (if at all) ; being sent to a central station of servers that are far away from me. = LAG
