🧮 assert_difference with negative values

ActiveSupport::Testing::Assertions can check that a value was reduced because of a block:

test 'should destroy' do
  assert_difference('User.count', -1) do
    delete :destroy, id: user.id
  end
end

#assert_difference has a default value of 1 so negative numbers must be explicit.
