What sets this forum off is the "I gotta get rid of this XXX" and then they list a problem that's totally solveable. It would in fact be like going to the breastfeeding forum and posting "My nipples are cracked--help me switch to bottles!" It's hard to say "Oh, poor thing, let me help you wean" or "let me help you rehome your cat" when there is absolutely no reason to do so.
If you come on this forum and say "I have XXX horribly complicated problem and am at the end of my rope, help!" we will bend over backwards to help. We may even suggest rehoming, if that is justified in the situation. There have been some very good threads on the topic of rehoming, how to do it right, when it becomes a lost cause, etc. But no, we don't generally contribute to "support" threads for "getting rid of" an animal because there are snags that can totally be overcome.
