Given the following:
class Article < ActiveRecord::Base ; has_many :comments ; end
class Comment < ActiveRecord::Base ; belongs_to :article ; end
I have an article already instantiated in the database, referenced as
Will the following code always "create" (save to DB) a new comment?
@article.comments << Comment.new :text => "Blah blah..."
I would like to be able to add comments to an article that already
already exists (and may already have comments that exist) in the
database w/out the new comment being saved to the database.

The reason I don't is because my Comment class is sub-classed using
STI. Thus, my code really looks more like this:
klass = Comment.get_class(params[:comment_type]) # get_class returns
Comment or a sub-type
@article.comments << klass.new :text => "Blah blah..."
Anyone have any ideas on how I can add STI comments to an article w/
out saving them, doing so "the right way" (I'm sure I could ugly-hack
