Bringing turkey to room temp?

Aw, darn, Kenji's Q&A offer is now closed to new posts. I was going to ask: when you're roasting a whole turkey, do you bring it to room temp like you do with a chicken? It seems like that means it would be sitting out for a few hours before going into the oven. Not sure if that's sanitary. I'm not a germophobe, so I'm really just curious. SE'ers, do you bring your turkey to room temp before roasting or do you just put it in from the fridge?
