Trusting all these people who won't speak on the record?
I'm not saying they aren't speaking the truth necessarily. Just pointing out why again there is no black and white.
An employee of the ou will not speak out against the ou.

So they're working for a place that they don't believe holds to its claimed standards?

That's exactly what I said. Their site claims the standards are on par. He seems to disagree with the statement his company puts out. However you look at it you get shady business or politics or the idea that kashrus is grey.
There is no answer at the end of what is true or not or what is "better" or not.

You have your relative that wont talk and he has his acquaintance that will

Being on the forums for a while you should know that everyone has at least one opinion!

Talk to Rabbi Kuber :-X
Anyhow, as mentioned earlier, the problem is not with the standards it's with the practical execution of the Hashgacha that many are not convinced some American is capable of. I can't wait to see if the KFI finds anything

will do
Rabbi Kuber works for the OU. I wonder if he'll give you a concrete answer...
But I would definitely like to hear what he says.
