So the good news is that copies of Borderlands PC procured by Aussies from Steam definitely won't be censored. The bad news is that if you pre-loaded it already, you'll have to delete your files and download it again - yep, all 7GB of it. Here's the official word:
"We'd like to confirm that the Australian version of Borderlands is not censored in any way. This applies to all platforms and distribution methods, including Steam. Because of an internal mix-up an incorrect version of the game was available to preload on Steam for a brief period of time. This version has since been replaced. We're asking everybody who has downloaded the Australian version of Borderlands previously to delete the local content and re-download the game to ensure that they have the proper files.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused."
Borderlands PC unlocks for Australian players on October 30th. For more details on Borderlands check out AusGamers full review (8.0) and enter our Borderlands competition for a chance to win some post-apocalyptic goodies.

what, a temporary error that was fixed within hours and a solution offered for all affected customers? I can see why that would annoy you! Good customer service is such a drag

I think you missed the part of having to download 7gb again if you already preloaded

Oops.. Sorry Trog, I forgot to justify my rant - Specifically the part where I got slugged with 7gb of download for pre-loading the wrong version (before the error came to light). Thankfully one of the guys in here is going to grab the proper version and share the love around.

I wouldn't have cared if Internode didn't count the 7gb or so of Steam download, but for some stupid reason they did. Going to chase it up with them, given that Steam content within AU is meant to be unmetered content (although I'll admit to not having Steamwatch installed currently, largely beacuse after almost 18 months of being with 'Node it never once triggered to tell me Steam was accessing content from overseas. Thus never got reinstalled when I went to Win7).

heh it doesn't even cross my mind to think about download issues any more now that I'm on Internode when it comes to Steam stuff. It sucks that you got charged for it but that's gotta be a pretty rare occurrence!

A lot seems to have gone wrong with this launch, seems as though they haven't really focused that much on the PC port.

fun fact: your gamespy id password (which is required to play online) is stored in plain text in your my documents folder.

Surely they can just patch it up, instead of having to download it all again.

Surely all it would take is deleting the censorship file and editing the registery to ignore it being missing.

Im on Internode, and with the Internode (NSW) server selected, it still metered Borderlands. My guess would be that they don't have it preloaded on their servers so its accessing it from overseas.

You can hax steam so it only downloads from your selected servers
