Is this organization legit?

I saw this just this morning and was wondering how legit this organization is. This article on the main page is filled with a ton of accusations.
Someone sent me this in an e-mail and I am not sure how they got this info.

Obviously it's not an official Orthodox Church in America site but the people who run it are real Orthodox who are members of that church.

What a squalid mess: a church largely of retired steelworkers or former coal miners, robbed blind by their own clergy.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Thanks. I always wonder what the ax to grind may be with as you say,  not official sites.
