Later today we'll give you some pointers for crafting a farewell email that doesn't annoy everyone, but for now we have Exhibit B for self-serving, over-sharing accountants who seek greener pastures:

Hello Everyone,

It has been an amazing experience to get to know and work with you all. [smiley emoticon]
At first glance this seems harmless. An entrepreneur! Hey, good for you, that's admirable. Sure, it's a little shameless that he's basically trying to solicit co-workers' business, but hey you gotta start somewhere.  But as we mentioned, there's a catch. Our tipster informs:
[He emailed it] to everyone in the ENTIRE global network.
