Mortal Kombat: Censorship Failure

GamePron uncovers how easy it is to import Mortal Kombat into Australia: "When the latest game in the long-running Mortal Kombat franchise of beat-’em-up games was refused classification in Australia due to our lack of an R18+ rating for mature gamers, I didn’t think much of it.

can everyone say this phrase out-loud to yourself,
"Then there’s the slew of them that get through with an MA 15+ rating when in every other first-world country they’re illegal to sell to minors at all"

What about it? Games like gears of war get through in Australia with an MA 15+ rating which technically allows "minors"(perhaps the wording could have be better in the article there, but a minor in Australia is someone under the age of 16)to buy the game, simply because we have no rating to classify the game as 17/18+ only,

whereas the same game in America can only be bought by 17+ or in the UK at 18+ and is illegal for "minors" to buy.
