FAQ 117: clarify that you can use an old email to re-secure your journal

FAQ 117 doesn't really make it clear that you can use an old e-mail address to re-secure your LiveJournal account if it is compromised. I propose changing the second paragraph in the first bullet to read:

If the email address currently associated with your LiveJournal account has been compromised and you can no longer access it, you can use another email address previously validated on your LiveJournal account to complete these steps. Your LiveJournal password can always be reset by anyone with access to the current email address associated with your account, as well as any email address which was validated on your account before the current email address. Ultimately, the security of your first validated email address determines the security of your LiveJournal account.
