    I was chased by a flock of wild turkeys once when I was a kid. I much prefer to be called a turker.

    I'm also firmly in the TurkER camp... if you've ever been around a wild turkey you know the smell alone is reason enough to never want to be even accidentally compared to one.

    I agree with the general consensus here. I get why you'd want to use the term turkeys, but this line of work gets crooked eyebrows enough as it is. I am a fun loving individual, but I would like my work to be taken seriously. As for the history of calling someone a turkey, I agree that it has negative connotations.

    alt_key, nothing beats a horde of egomaniacal swans.

    Definitely Turker. It rhymes with worker.

    I like that...it carries a bit more meaning.

    No disrespect was meant by the "turkey" option, in case anyone was curious - it just opens the door to graphics and derivative (but not derisive) terminology a bit better.

    I would say Turker, although I suppose we could be Turkee(s).
