But none that I have heard of, and certainly none that I would take seriously...Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche is as authentic and courageous and kind as they come, is held in high regard by many lineage holders and in my mind he is Manjushri in person.
What is it exactly that you're trying to find out? You say that there are things that the websites don't reveal... What are you looking for?
I find 'propaganda' and 'dissenting voices' rather strange terminology, though.

Well, to begin with, how many followers / students does he have? What languages do they speak? Which deity practices do they do? (The Dharma Gar paragraph copied above refers to them, but does not say what they are.)
I found this site like, yesterday and used the opportunity to ask questions I'd been wondering about since the demise of e-sangha, but had no where else to ask. Tsem Rinpoche and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche are similar in some ways, e.g. in their attempts to modernize or adapt their presentation of the dharma to a globalized audience. I don't think it's unreasonable of me to seek out dissenting voices, when the main source of information about either of them is their own propaganda. Perhaps it is wicked of me, but if there are criticisms, I would like to learn about them in a timely fashion.
