Display the Cut-Tag Text for Everyone

Display the Cut-Tag Text for Everyone

Short, concise description of the idea
Let people who have cut-tags turned off see the cut-tag text, preferably in another font.

Full description of the idea
LJ has the feature of allowing people to turn off cut-tags in their consoles, which is awesome. However, posters oftentimes include important information in their cut-tag text. For example,

lj-cut text="Spoilers for tonight's Veronica Mars follow!"

is something that I'd like to see, even if the post is not cut.

Ideally, people who have cut-tags turned off would be able to see the text before the bulk of the cut post. A different font, such as bold or italics, would be even more nice.

An ordered list of benefits
  • People who have cuts turned off would receive all information in a post, including that in the lj-cut text.
  • This would aid frustration when important information about the post is not displayed.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • The only issue I can think of is that it would require some change to LJ to make it work.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • It would be fine for me if the line was displayed as it is seen by people who do not have cut tags turned off, or if the code for the information was displayed with alterations to keep the cut from kicking in.
