Heh. "Rich" is high on my list of words that set off the bullshit meter.
Not to say that the word doesn't have legitimate uses; even "flat" can actually mean something if used correctly. But "rich" is pretty much second only to "nice" in being a sign that the writer doesn't actually have anything to say.
