What are folks using these days for "paranoid" deletion?

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
anymore.

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.

TIA,

Sean

I usually use a “deleted” field. Simple, works.

I haven’t used anything recently but came across this one today:

Simple but tedious and not very DRY. If you have 30+ active record
models in your application do you really implement this delete check
for all of them? Any shortcuts you can suggest?

Any other suggestions out there?

The named_scope functionality of Rails 2.1 could simplify this.
Any other suggestions out there?

I had a feeling named scope might be helpful here. Thanks for the
tip. I will look into it.
