Starting here, you can read (interspersed with a conversation about math) a conversation between me and Dmitri Pavlov about how Dmitri cannot read the MathML on the Forum. He can read it just fine on the Lab. We potentially diagnose the problem as too wide pixel-based spacing in the Forum’s MathML CSS. Can anything be done about it? Screenshot.
This is probably MathJaX, it’s almost certainly not iTeX. However, that’s by-the-by. What is “Chromium”? What machine is Dimitri using? The closest I have is Google Chrome on a Mac where it looks just fine. I need to be able to reproduce the problem to be able to have a chance at fixing it.

This doesn’t make sense to me; surely it’s iTeX, because iTeX input is the pseudo-LaTeX that I used. It just rendered with MathJaX instead of with MathML, right?
It seems like the page http://nforum.mathforge.org/discussion/3981/stacks-of-algebraic-ktheory-spectra-and-topological-ktheory/ has overlaps, which I can currently reproduce. For example, in Comment 2 by Mike Shulman the blackboard letter Z overlaps with "an".
I don't really understand the point of iTeX. MathJax can render both MathML and TeX, why do we need iTeX at all?

That’s the false assumption in what I’ve just read. The process is the following:
So your funny display issues are due to MathJaX, not iTeX. It is possible that there is some interaction between the MathJaX CSS and the forum’s own CSS, but that’s nothing to do with iTeX.
(Incidentally, with its Pseudo-LaTeX input, MathJaX also converts it to a form of MathML internally)
There is a previous discussion of MathJax on the Forum that may be useful background.
Regarding reproducing … I edited my comments on the positive cone thread to use HTML and Unicode directly, so Dmitri could read them without difficulty. But you won’t be able to reproduce anything there.
