Comment on Smart Contracts?

I'm trying to find a comment I remember reading about smart contracts, along the lines of the concept of a human-free "objective" contract being incoherent because ultimately humans have to design these smart contracts. I've searched the threads on smart contracts, Ethereum, and other likely topics with no luck. Does anyone happen to have an idea of the comment I'm talking about? Thanks!

Pogues protest song in mega election thread?

In one of the December election threads, someone made a passing reference to a Pogues song, and I can't find it. If memory serves, the comment didn't mention them by name, but said something to the effect of "I never thought I'd be singing xxxxx, but it's relevant again." The only things I can recall were that it was from one of the 1980s albums and it wasn't "Fairytale of New York". If anyone can help jog my memory, I'd be much obliged. Thanks!

MeFi Fantasy Baseball 2017: Dynasty Edition

Major League Baseball Spring training starts this week, and I was wondering if there might be some interest in starting a fantasy baseball dynasty league. I've participated in cgk's redraft league for a few years, and it's been a lot of fun, but I thought the addition of a dynasty element might appeal to some of the more seasoned spreadsheet athletes out there. Details below. [more inside]
