.free/.libre and the new .o have the same exact purpose in their charters and
don't claim "the right to raise prices to cover operating costs". Methinks
"TOWER CoreDomain" is a company trying to misuse OpenNIC to promote Web
hosting services. .free/.libre and .o have the same promotional purposes and
at no cost (IIRC .o charges for SSL certificates and the like). I vote No on
".core" and any other TLD used solely to advertise a company's products.
