It bother me too, I prefer the old style, contracted notifications by default. I was wondering a way to change this options, and found that this condition is called "Big View", but my knowledge in development is very weak, so I can't help.
If somebody knows how to disable the default "Big view" please help us.

I am running a G3 port for the LG Optimus G (original) and I have tracked down where this is in the source code. I will try to work on a mod to fix and I am looking for help. Any experienced devs here interested?

The issue is in LGSystemUI - BaseStatusBar. There is no method updateExpansionStates as there is in AOSP.
This is the method which goes through the notification stack and collapses all except the top one (or any that the user has manually expanded).
Instead, the LG system simply expands each notification as it comes in.

I thought I could just edit the smali for BaseStatusBar and change the default behavior to collapsed, but this didn't work. (Perhaps I am doing it wrong.) Plan B will be to develop an xposed mod which could hook the add- and removeNotificationView methods, and manually put in the updateExpansionStates method from AOSP. Let me know if you have any ideas or think you can contribute.

It's worth noting that LG set the priority of each notification to maximum.
