ActiveRecord destroy callbacks on has many through

I came across some behaviour in ActiveRecord today that I found counter–intuitive. When I #delete a record from a has_many ..., through: ... collection association I expected the join record’s after_destroy association to run, just like the after_create and friends which do run. So blogged about it.
