Sutra Authenticity

Can anyone direct to me the threads that debate mahayana sutra authenticity? I feel certain they exist but cannot think of the right keywords to get a succesful search.

It has been debated many times in different threads, from different points of view, or different aspects of it, for example: Sri Simha in Zen/Chan lineage, Pratyutpanna sutra, "Purifying " karma?, First Mahayana sutras when?, The Lotus sutra, and so on...
