"Low Violence" Red Orchestra 2 for Australia?

GamePron has word that Australian gamers looking into the just-announced Red Orchestra 2 Pre-Purchases on Steam are greeted with a message saying they will receive the "low violence version," which they say is the same message that appears on the Australian version of Left 4 Dead 2. Australia recently approved an RA18+ rating that should cover such games, but this has not yet taken effect. It is not certain whether the Australian edition of the military shooter sequel will be censored, however, as Tripwire's Alan Wilson posted a statement about this on the Steam Users' Forums:

We've put "LV" up for Australia because we haven't got the rating back yet - and dear old Oz has just announced the new higher rating category. We are HOPING that they will take the same view as PEGI/BBFC and NOT go all silly on us. However, until we're sure, we putting LV up to be safe. The Okkers may want to wait a few days and see what the end result is - but we'd hate for you to buy it and THEN find your ratings board can't cope with dismemberment (like USK...).

WONT SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!?

My favorite form of censorship are the RO servers, and other games' servers, that kick/ban for harsh language. While the innocent children pretend to mass murder hundreds or even thousands of others while decapitating and blowing their limbs off, we must protect their virgin ears from the harsh evil sounds/letters of a curse word... Ugh... censorship...

Oh yea, and god forbid there's a nip slip! The children may as well be anally raped by satan himself if they see that.

Some people find incessant cursing distracting and reduces their enjoyment, just as I'm sure some people find being censored reduces their enjoyment. The difference is, you're in the server THEY are paying for, thus their comfort and enjoyment takes precedence over your own.
