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

Should I have a Summary?I rarely ever really do a summary, mainly because I don't think about it. But when I have gone to do one, I find that it doesn't flow well to the Hub, and it just seems to make for an awkward introduction. However, as I was writing the first section to a hub, I noticed some...

How long does it take to make money with hubpages? After 160 views on 10 hubs they tell me I have 0 clicks. Is something wrong?

Hi, everyone! I'm making $0.01 per day or even less on some days, and I have already been actively writing Hubs for about two months. I have 14 featured articles so far, I think that I'm doing all I can, or am I? Am I missing out on something? Or is this the normal learning curve and should I be...
