I have the following question closed on Stackoverflow which I have asked on biology.stackexchange.com now but I think no one will be able to answer that because it has more to do with Ontologies than with biology itself.

Disease ontology for disease synonyms

Please suggest a correct place to post this question.

If your question involved code, then probably yes. However your question as it stands had nothing to do with code at all. From what I understand about it, you're trying to get terms for which you can use in your program. That is not a programming problem. –  Jeff Mercado Jan 18 '12 at 8:10
    
@JeffMercado is biology forum a better place for it? –  Grrrrr Jan 18 '12 at 8:17

It sounds like it's a fine place to take it, I'm not familiar with the subject at all. If you're ever in doubt, ask in their meta, Biology Meta. –  Jeff Mercado Jan 18 '12 at 8:19

I think that this is much better suited for Healthcare IT (currently in Beta). Flag to have it migrated or repost it, and we'll take it (I am a mod pro tem over there).

I don't think it's enough about the science to fit on the Biology site.

The point is that no question of the form, 'where do we find an ontology' is not on topic. In fact, any question of 'where do I find data' is off-topic.
