I proposed that if-else become an if-statement synonym nearly two months ago. It is clearly justified in becoming a synonym considering that if-else-statement and if-then-else are synonyms of if-statement already.
if-else has had 26 more questions tagged in it since I proposed the synonym, so I am posting this as a 'question' here because I think we are doing the site a disservice by not synonymizing them sooner. Please vote for or against the synonym. And while you're there, perhaps you should vote on all other proposed synonyms considering synonym suggestions apparently get little attention.
