Popular shia website wilayat.net in one of its article on defense of Zurarah (one of the main shia hadith narrator) said:

حدثني حمدويه، قال حدثني محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس، عن مسمع كردين أبي سيار، قال : سمعت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) يقول لعن الله بريدا و لعن الله زرارة

Abu Abdullah (alaihi salam) said: “May Allah curse Buraydah and may Allah curse Zurarah.

Hadith is weak. Reason: "Whatever Muhammad b. Isa narrated exceptionally from the books of Yunus is not reliable. LINK

 

But when same Muhammad bin Isa narrated from same Yunus in criticism on Abu Bakr a.s and Umar a.s, it become thiqah.

(9) حدثنا محمد بن عيسى عن يونس عن عبدالصمد عن ابى جعفر عليه السلام قال سمعته يقول ان من ورآء هذه اربعين عين شمس ما بين شمس إلى شمس اربعون عاما فيها خلق كثير ما يعلمون ان الله خلق آدم اولم يخلقه وان من وراء قمركم هذا اربعين قمرا مابين قمر إلى قمر مسيرة اربعين يوما فيها خلق كثير مايعلمون ان الله خلق آدم اولم يخلقه قد الهموا كما الهمت النحل لعنة الاول والثانى في كل وقت من الاوقات وقد وكل بهم ملائكة متى مالم يلعنوها عذبوا
- كتاب بصائر الدرجات للصفار 1/506

From Muhammad ibn 'Isa ibn 'Ubaid (thiqa) from Yunus ibn 'Abd ur-Rahmaan (thiqa) from 'Abd us-Samad ibn Basheer (thiqa) from Abu Ja'far (a.s.). He ('Abd us-Samad) said: "I heard Abu Ja'far (a.s.) saying that: 'Behind this sun are forty such suns, and what is between a sun to another sun is forty years. Over there are many creations who do not know whether or not Allah created Adam (a.s.). And behind this moon of yours are forty such moons, and what is between a moon to another moon is forty days. Over there are many creations who do not know whether or not Allah created Adam (a.s.). They have been inspired, just like the Bee has been inspired, to curse the first and the second, all the time. And with them are Angels, who torture them when they do not curse the two."

Salamun alaykum.

I have no idea about the website. As far as the narrations are concerned it should be mentioned that there are discussions about محمد بن عیسی and the narrations he narrates from یونس بن عبدالرحمن.

Regarding محمد بن عیسی، Najashi writes:

جليل في (من) أصحابنا، ثقة، عين، كثير الرواية، حسن التصانيف‏

 رجال‏ النجاشي ص : 333

So according to him, محمد بن عیسی is absolutely reliable.

Then Najashi quotes from ibn al-Walid:

عن ابن الوليد أنه قال ما تفرد به محمد بن عيسى من كتب يونس و حديثه لا يعتمد عليه‏

but Najashi rejects the opinion of ibn al-Walid saying that:

رأيت أصحابنا ينكرون هذا القول، و يقولون من مثل أبي جعفر محمد بن عيسى‏


Based on this explanation, the narrations of محمد بن عیسی from یونس are not weak from this dimension.

However, in the first narration about Zurarah, there is a narrator called جبريل بن أحمد الفاريابي who, as far as I know, ‏ is not authenticated. So the narration is weak because of him.

:bismillah:

Also, it must be known that wilayat.net is a website where people can write and contribute with their own articles. And the articles you have shared are both written by two different people. 

 

Anyway, It is actually mentioned in the first article about Zurarah r.h that:

 

The sanad of hadith is weak. There is Jabrail b. Ahmad al-Faryabi in the chain, and his truthfulness is not proved. 

The second narrator is Muhammad b. Isa b. Obaid al-Yaqtini. There are different views on him. And Najashi is amongst scholars who accept him.

 

For the rest, I think brother @amirhosein_88 gave a good reply. 

Wsalam
