Like in "Target" vs. "destination", I also have the question whether to choose target or destination, but in a different context. I am talking about a list on which someone enters the place in a warehouse where stuff is to be placed (destination bin vs. target bin). I think neither of the contexts given in above question match my case.

So shall I add a comment to that question or shall I start a new one with the same title?

    I would go with a new question with the same title. Perhaps you can get an answer before it is closed. Commented Aug 30, 2012 at 12:58

You could ask a new question with a slightly different title, i.e. including your context. So, instead of Target vs Destination, title it Target bin vs Destination bin, or something similar.

In your description, make sure you mention the other question and why it fails to answer your question. Also, look up both words in a good dictionary or two, and tell us exactly why the definitions aren't helping you to choose the right word.
