Many consumers see security as peace of mind, usually arising from anything from dumb luck to mathematical certainty, of:
- knowing you're well protected. to a consumer, this may include knowing the warranties on products, company name/location, support contact info.
To consumerium, it means protection from worst cases.
It does not refer to either "hard security" or "soft security" which are discredited ideas. Nor does it refer to any shared feeling that arises from some faction, especially not that of the sysop power structure. Consumerium carefully separates user interests from contributors' feelings. As in any competent project, contributors put up with some discomfort to achieve a desirable result from the beneficiary.
