Do we use Rails ActiveRecord as a Hybrid Structure, i.e. Data Structure+Object ?

Hi Guys,

I have posted the question whether we use Rails ActiveRecord as a Hybrid Structure, i.e. Data Structure+Objec, here ruby - Do we use Rails ActiveRecord as a Hybrid Structure, i.e. Data Structure+Object? - Stack Overflow

What are your thoughts on this? It doesn't matter whether we hijack the conversation here from stackoverflow or continue there as long as we can have a meaningful discussion on this.

regards,
