name calling at its best  
I send a lot of emails to a variety of groups in my company. A LOT. My standard greeting is something along the lines of, "Hi, all ..." or "Good morning, all ..."

But that's boring. I'd like to come up with a variety of interesting and fun things to call groups of people. I've successfully deployed "dynamos" (thanks, eestiplika!), and I want more ideas. What are some other fun, playful things that I could call people in a professional setting?

I suppose fellow-travelers is a loaded phrase, but might be funny under certain circumstances
"People of Earth" (Your attention please...)

I love that hounds are both a cry and a mute.

Superheroes. Or [Random blank] fans (broccoli, Bette Davis, bel canto).

Campers, super-friends, my lovelies.

My favorite examples refer to the content of the email: "Hello, Masters of Detail! This is just a friendly reminder that all uses of the corporate logo should conform to the seventeen-page style guide on the intranet."

I can't actually endorse "boys and girls" but I yearn fro the day when it is obviously obsolete for everyone so that it can be used in play, because it makes me giggle.

What about plays on the company or unit name?

I second the suggestion of "____ fans."

Campers, soldiers, loyal citizens..... I'll keep thinking.

Mouseketeers, sailors, people of earth, shoppers... but I love X fans! It's so extensible. People can be fans of anything: waffles, pixelation, benzene, Jake Gyllenhaal, the oxford comma, and so many other things.

Similarly extensible: "My little X(es)". My little turtledoves, my little paperclips, my little howler monkeys, and so on.

I misread "paperclips" as "participles." My little participles!
