def attach_except_utility_scope

  # Allow easy rejection of items. 
  # Can take an a single id or ActiveRecord object, or an array of them
  # Example: 
  #   before   Article.all.reject{|a| a == @bad_article }
  #   after    Article.except(@bad_article)
  named_scope :except, lambda { |item_or_list|
    # nil or empty array causes issues here with mysql
    item_or_list.blank? ? {} : {:conditions => ["#{quoted_table_name}.#{primary_key} NOT IN (?)", item_or_list]}
  }
