Last time I checked, a summary isn't a requirement, but will be beneficial if an author did write one.
Also, last time I checked, not writing a summary isn't going to get an article banned nor will the author get banned.
When your Hub has a summary it is most likely clicked on in search results, than those Hubs that don't have a summary. Try typing a few of your Hub URLs into search engines to see if it would need a summary.
Untrue, for the simple fact that if you don't write a summary, then Google and other search engines take a portion of the Hub's content to create one.
Go to your hub
Look at the buttons at the top, above your title - they are Edit, Stats, Delete...
If you click the "Delete" button, a pop-up will appear asking you to confirm - click OK
A red box appears above your hub, explaining that your hub will be deleted after 24 hours of inactivity (not being edited).
You will then see three blue button at the top of your page - Preview, Undelete, Done Editing.
To delete, click Done Editing.
Go to your "my accounts " page. The deleted hub will then appear with a line through it. Leave it alone for the required 24 hours and it will be permanently deleted after the time has elapsed.
Hope this helps
Here is a link to the learning center. There is a link at the bottom of almost every page as well. You will find many answers there:the learning center

I thought if a hubpage was listed in Google search it was featured. But apparently that is not the truth. I guess I will keep the hubs up and run my own check on them.

My Hubs get very little traffic and earn very little. Even adding my Hubs to Network Sites, did nothing. I am not that knowledgeable about how to increase traffic. I have posted them on Pinterest and Flipboard,...

With the latest tweak to their Hub-featuring formula, HubPages has pretty much destroyed the reason I signed up in the first place, two years ago. I was (and still am) in search of a site that would host quality...
