[underscores] subdomains and email forwarding

FAQs 104 and 131 include almost identical information on paid subdomains, so those sections should be combined into a consolidated section.

FAQ 104:
If you have a Paid Account, your journal will also be located at http://exampleusername.livejournal.com/, once again replacing exampleusername with the username you chose. Do not include www. in the subdomain URL; this will cause you to receive an error message. Please note that if you have underscores in your username (for example, "user_example"), you will need to convert them to hyphens in this type of URL (http://user-example.livejournal.com/). If the underscore is located at the beginning or end of your username, this type of URL may not work at all for your journal.

FAQ 131:
* A personalised subdomain name (http://exampleusername.livejournal.com/ in addition to the standard http://www.livejournal.com/users/exampleusername/).
(Note: Do not include www. in the subdomain URL; this will cause you to receive an error message. If your username contains underscores, you may need to change the underscores to dashes to use your personalised subdomain. If the underscore is located at the beginning or end of your username, this type of URL may not work at all for your journal.)

Edit: Apparently underscores work fine in email addresses.
We should also add information about underscores messing up paid account email forwarding somewhere.
