collection destroy! does not work with ParanoidDateTime

Reported by Alex Arnell | January 22nd, 2009 @ 01:42 PM

ParanoidDateTime does not override any behavior when working with association collections.

class Post
  has n, :comments

class Comment
  belongs_to :post

Post.first.comments.destroy! # creates an sql DELETE command
Post.first.comments.each { |c| c.destroy } # triggers use of deleted_at column

    This is actually by design. The ! indicates that the method bypasses any callbacks, including paranoia. In the future there will be a Model#destroy that will adhere to callbacks.

    • State changed from “unconfirmed” to “not-applicable”

    There will also be a Collection#destroy method that performs the equivalent of the each { |c| c.destroy } example above.
