The non-exact synonyms from the gene ontology are producing many false positives in my use of the Annotator.  For example, 'selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor' is a "related" synonym for the GO term GO:0014076 'response to fluoxitine'.  

Suggest either adding a parameter to allow the user to control which kinds of synonyms are used, displaying the kind of synonym in the output, or limiting GO synonyms to 'exact' and 'narrower' synonyms.
