[troubleshooting] Proposed edit to FAQ 115

As suggested here, I've rewritten FAQ 115 to include more detailed information on server-wide spam filters, along with other miscellaneous changes. Please, tear this apart and put it back together again, I'm not always the world's best at wording longer documents. I tend to ramble. :)

FAQ 137

In FAQ 137: How do I create a new syndicated account or add an existing one to my Friends list?, I'd like to suggest this rewording of the third paragraph. It adds in a note that a syndicated account's username cannot be registered if you want to make it a syn account, and it also fixes a typo ("you you cannot enter the URL of an HTML page on the site").

(I don't think it sounds quite right, so feel free to reword it as you see fit.)

Before
If you are creating a new syndicated account, you must enter both the desired account name and the correct URL of the site's RSS feed; you you cannot enter the URL of an HTML page on the site. You may be able to learn the URL of the RSS feed by contacting the webmaster or support service of the site. Users with free accounts cannot create new feeds.

After
If you are creating a new syndicated account, you must enter both the desired account name (which cannot be registered) and the correct URL of the site's RSS feed (which cannot be the URL of an HTML page on the site). You may be able to learn the URL of the RSS feed by contacting the webmaster or support service of the site. Users with free accounts cannot create new feeds.
