:Advice (the [[Consumerium buying signal]]) will probably be seen by the [[end user]] as a [[red light|red]]/[[yellow light|yellow]]/[[green light]] traffic-type signal, or as a [[score]] easily translated into a [[price premium]], or as a note in [[Simple English]] about issues with, or merits of, the product.  All rely on [[Signal Wiki]] comments compiled by software using a [[wikitext standard]].  [[Semantic link]] standards may be required also.  A deeper [[Research Wiki]] backs the signal and permits arbitrary [[faction]] debate, development of [[individual buying criteria|individual]] and [[institutional buying criteria]].
