Direct sql "delete from"


#1

I was thinking, if I don’t manage to figure out the problem with
acts_as_taggable, that I could untag objects via a direct SQL DELETE
on the tag join table (something like “where tag_id = tag_to_delete
and user_id = current_user”). Are there any dangers to this approach?

This worked like a charm, but it still makes me a bit uneasy - I have
no idea if some rails facet requires that all deletes be done through
a wrapper. Anyone?
