OK, a few more pieces of the puzzle...
This morning I went back and re-read the warning page, and noticed it made mention of a specific website (I won't name the website here because then it will link to it) but it's in the screenshot I attached.
Also, apparently it's only the first page of the thread that offends Chrome. I was able to load page 2 without a problem.
Anyway, it may just be "one of those things" that people refer to that doesn't have a solution because it's not really a problem
but I just wanted to close the loop with these last bits of information.
