And I received the following answer:
"Thank you for your email. I might release them as OFL in the future,
but for now I would like to keep them free only for non-commercial use.
So I guess they should be taken down then.
But if my account still remains on the site, I would like to possibly
release some of my other fonts as OFL in the near future."
