Statistics questions tend to end up on http://stats.stackexchange.com/, so you could try that, too. It's a well-informed community.

I haven't yet found anywhere where I can say "when would a chi-squared test be more appropriate than a KS test?" and get an informed, knowledgeable answer. (Answers from people who /know/ what they're talking about rather than just /think/ they know.)
