May Be Deleted
This plugin is meant to be used in conjuction with acts_as_paranoid.
Finding deleted has_one and belongs_to associative records, which have been deleted via acts_as_paranoid.
To show the author_name of an article, whose author has been deleted:
assuming that article belongs_to author
belongs_to :author, class_name => "User"
Consider a case of an application where a user(“Bob”) has created a note. Bob has left the organization and is “deleted” from the system. However the note created by Bob is not deleted. When rendering the note, the name of the creator => “Bob” needs to be displayed, even though he is “deleted” from the system.
A better use is explained in this blog article.
