Lately there has been a lot posts about how Ruby on Rails might not follow the best practices.

ActiveRecord (and Rails) Considered Harmful

Composition Of Responsibility vs Interface Implementation
http://lostechies.com/derickbailey/2012/01/03/composition-of-responsibility-vs-interface-implementation/
ActiveRecord might truly be a horrible beast with far too many concerns in one given place. I haven’t dug into that source code very much. From what I remember of it, it’s huge and difficult for me to understand (but then, it does a metric-ton-squared of meta-programming, so I guess I’m not surprised that it’s hard for me to understand).

http://wekeroad.com/2012/01/03/rails-has-turned-me-into-a-cannibalizing-idiot/
Some interesting posts flying around about how ActiveRecord is rotting people’s brains and how Rails is "pants on head retarded". I figured I might as well respond.
