First of all, thank you for not cross posting on The Workplace. I've written a rant recently on how to get a question migrated there, the gist of it is:

- Drop the questions in the Water Cooler, the Workplace's main chat room.
For the question in question I'd go with option 2, asking in the Water Cooler. It's a bit lonely in there, but if there's a version of your question that fits The Workplace, the regulars will guide you to it.
As for why it's not a good fit for Programmers, well as always, the FAQ puts it best:

Your question is about a people problem, not a software development problem, and that the people involved happen to be programmers doesn't make it unique to our profession.
