I'm looking at the HTPC Show and Tell Thread. When I click on page 3 I get the warning below from Chrome

Google Chrome has blocked access to this page on www.geekzone.co.nz.

Thanks for letting us know. The reply in question was just an image, nothing bad - Chrome raised the flag on the domain hosting that image which was used to host malware before.

I will notify the user.

And the BS security stuff keeps getting turned back on when it does its silent updates. IE is the most honest one of the lot for opting out of being spyed on, Firefox at least doesnt revert it to being back on again with updates.

Er, no.  Chrome downloads a rather large blacklist database when it's running - same as Firefox does.  The history of what sites you visit is only sent if you turn on the Sync features.
