Turn off lj-cuts with a URL argument

Title
Turn off lj-cuts with a URL argument

Short, concise description of the idea
Implement the URL argument &noljcut=1, which would "turn off" lj-cuts on the page that you are viewing.

Full description of the idea
The implementation of the userprop to disable lj-cuts on lastn and/or friends pages gave me this idea. It would be cool to be able to turn off lj-cuts on a per-page basis, with the use of a URL argument such as &noljcut=1. Ideally, it would be possible to do this on any page on LiveJournal that contains the potential for lj-cuts, including:

All lastn pages
All friends pages
All day view pages
http://www.livejournal.com/stats/latest.bml
(there's probably one or two more, but I can't think of them at the moment)

So, for example, if you wanted to read user "foo"'s recent entries without lj-cut turned on, you could go to:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/foo/?noljcut=1

And you'd see all of their entries with lj-cut disabled.

An ordered list of benefits


  • Allows users to read/browse journals without lj-cut turned on, and without having to friend the user.
  • Allows users to view only a specific user's journal without lj-cut turned on, instead of having to turn it off for all friends.
  • Allows you to view your own journal's lastn view without lj-cuts turned on, without affecting the display of everyone else's lastn views.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved


  • It's possible that a user may not want others to be able to view their journal with lj-cuts turned off...but I don't really think that's an issue.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation


  • Implement &noljcut=1 so that it can be used on the pages listed above.
  • I assume that the implementation of this would use most of the code that the current userprop uses.
