I've been digging through the archives, and have come up with some

 - 2014-12-05: "*URGENT* Proposal to organise Parabola"[0]
 - 2014-12-17: "SFC"[1]
 - 2015-01-04 "Reflection on the Relationship of Money and Parabola"[2]

Beware that the threads contain a little bit of talk about governance,
and a lot of talk about communism and capitalism; and that it's a bit
tough to weed through it.

IMO, except for the one message from the "SFC" thread that I link to
below[4], the 2015 discussion is probably the only one worth reading.

In one of my messages in the 2015 discussion[3], I wrote:

Now having dug through the mail archives; I was referring to one of
Tiberiu's messages[5] in the "SFC" discussion.
