Good Touch Jump to Story

If you haven't already figured it out, using the ActiveRecord .touch command not only updates your models' updated_at timestamp, but it also executes any and all after_save callbacks which have been defined. This, in many cases, may not be what you intended by calling a simple foo.touch. So, Ryan Sonnek released Good Touch, which will still update the timestamp, but will not execute your callbacks.
