Returning an empty ActiveRecord scope

Returning an empty scope can come in handy, e.g. as a default object. In Rails 4 you can achieve this by calling none Archive on your ActiveRecord model.

MyModel.none # returns an empty ActiveRecord::Relation object

For older Rails versions you can use the attached initializer to get a none scope.

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
