[Comments] Proposed addition to FAQ 115

After answering several questions about delayed comment emails recently, I'd like to propose an addition to FAQ 115, "Where are my comment notification emails?"

If your comment emails are arriving delayed, please keep in mind that email is not designed for instantaneous communication. Any email message may travel through any number of servers after it is sent, and there is no guarantee that any of those servers will pass the message along immediately. Also, email servers may be affected by factors which also affect the Internet at large, such as viruses, worms, and malicious attacks. LiveJournal endeavors to send all email messages in a prompt manner, and delays are typically outside LiveJournal control.

Feel free to rip this apart and put it back together again, or tell me it's not needed and I'll just keep writing answers instead. ;)
