When mass-assignment is disallowed by default with
config.active_record.whitelist_attributes = true
Two things happen
1. A message is logged "WARNING: Can't mass-assign protected attributes:
blah" (which is the case even if whitelist_attributes is not set to true
2. Mass assignment is not allowed without explicite declaration but there
is no error, the same application fails to save/update a model that
produces some other error which isn't easily apparent as to why it happened
I found it useful for my development to make 2 changes
1. Update log message to be more explicit such as "WARNING: Can't
mass-assign *in SomeModel* protected attributes: blah"
2. Thrown an exception - this would only make sense if whitelist_attributes
is set to true
Any opinion if this would be a good suggestion for the rails feature
request, specifically #2?
