I get this message from setting
config.active_record.mass_assignment_sanitizer = :strict in my
development.rb file.

Is the purpose of this
config.active_record.mass_assignment_sanitizer = :strict statement to
essentially block all mass assignments?

Ahmy Y.

I don’t hink so,
config.active_record.whitelist_attributes = true
forces that every model should have attr_accessible.

but if I’m not mistaken, config.active_record.mass_assignment_sanitizer

sets that if there is mass assignment, it throws an error. comment it
set the behavior to silently ignore if there is mass assignment.
