"Display crosspost link" should be retroactive

Title:
"Display crosspost link" should be retroactive

Area:
Crossposting

Summary:
When "Display Crosspost Link" in Account Settings > Other Sites is checked or unchecked, it should retroactively affect all of a user's existing Dreamwidth entries.

Description:
Motivation: I only recently discovered that this option existed, and was enabled on my account. I disabled it because my DW journal is a public identity and it crossposts to a non-public LJ identity. I'd really rather not have that link show up on old entries, but I don't know how to remove it!

Expected behavior was that changing the setting would change the old entries.

Note: Editing an old DW post does not seem to change the link's existence.

Poll #12913 "Display crosspost link" should be retroactive
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 50
