Just curious what people are recommending these days for referential
integrity, etc. when it comes to record deletion. A while back I
looked at acts_as_paranoid and it looked promising but there were a
few issues with Rails 2.x as I seem to recall. It also seems like
that solution has fallen out of favor some and is not as widely used
So what are some of my options if I care about record integrity? At
times I would like to delete records yet so they are not available for
future use but still preserve them for previous use.
