To delete something, use a form rather than a link

In web-based products from e-commerce stores to email clients to accounting software you often find index pages where each item in a list (or row in a table) has a Delete option. This is often coded as a link… but it shouldn’t be.

I liked this comment by Rails developer Dan where he advises a fellow Rails developer that to create his Delete control he should use a form rather than a link, via Rails’s button_to method.
