Is there guidance or recommendations on sending thank you notes if you are not extended an offer?

Made it through phone interviews and on-site and sent thank you notes according to interviewing series to everyone that I interviewed with.  Was told yesterday they are going in a different direction. I was going to send a thank you note to the 2 key decision makers for the opportunity, who have been a part of the process the longest.

I am wondering about sending to the rest of the group that interviewed me (10 in total) at the on-site interview. Is that overkill? Does it appear desperate?

Thank you,

Hello Bill,

I'm going to fall narrowly on the side of overkill. You've already differentiated yourself enough by sending the first thank you notes to the other interviewers.  Additionally, I think your time is better spent pursuing the next opportunity.

Even if you decide to send them, I don't think it would appear desparate unless you attempt to close.

  Good luck!

 Thanks Michael,

That's the direction I went. Onward and upward
