I just sent this via their web form:

I have a point of contention with this page.
I was hoping you could refrase this bit under Licence:

This game should not be added to Linux distributions or respositories.

And turn it into a suggestion or a request (eg, "We recommend that this
game not be added to Linux distributions or respositories.).

Unless you explicitly do not wish to be included in any distributions!
(if thats the case please email me back, i'll file bugs where i can).
