If you delete a hub and just let it sit, do you still have to go into Webmaster tools, etc and ask for de indexing to avoid duplicate content problems?
There are already lots of forum posts on this topic already
It's always best to have it removed from search and from the cache on Google and on Bing. However, you are open to plagiarists stealing your work if you don't re-post it some place, even just as a non-featured Hub on HubPages. It's difficult to prove that you actually wrote the article if it's not online. The link to a non-featured Hub still works so you can always use that link to show that you own the content.
Writer Fox So if I unfeature and repost I would not have a duplicate content problem?
If you are going to re-post quickly, then remove your Hub completely.
The problem I was talking about is:
#1 people who forget to check their articles for plagiarism before they move them to another site and then have a problem proving who published first
#2 people who want to un-publish an article but don't intend to publish it elsewhere in the near future.
