Confusing randomness

Something has always puzzled me - what governs the order of the comments in the email alerts?

My most recent alert is typical - this list is the dates and times of the comments, in the order they appear in the email.

Would it be so hard for them to be in chronological order....?

Oddly enougth it seems to alternate between am and pm to a degree like a buch of one then one or two of the other then it'll switch randomally.....though it couls be the size/contents of the alert as well.........

I turned them off. L
I never pay attention to them...
Do you delete them? L
Nope, they go to a different folder and I don't look at them since don't get a whole bunch of comments I can just go to my "YOU" page.
Your YOU page will let you turn them off... L
I turned them off at one point but then for some reason I can't remember I turned them back on.
I got tired of cleaning out the inbox: 99% (SPAM, Instructables & YouTube) on that account. L
Hehe I'm not sure how full mine is, but it's nowhere near that much.
I meant virtually everything was in those three categories on that e-mail account. L
