I am currently working on a paper using the apa6 class and I won't require an abstract, i.e. it will be worse if I have one. Would anybody happen to know of a clean way to suppress or deactivate the abstract in an apa6 class document? I tried to work around it, but couldn't come up with anything working.

You said that you tried a workaround. Ergo you've got some code which you can form to a minimal example and add to your question. – Thorsten Donig Jan 16 '12 at 9:20
From what I see from the code, the absence of an abstract will only produce a warning. – egreg Jan 16 '12 at 11:29
hey there, well an example won't do any good in that case, as I just tried to delete the lines that mention abstract from the class file but it resulted in errors unfortuantly. – shkelda Jan 20 '12 at 17:09
Well seems like I was assuming that with apa6 nothing changed. the original apa style produced an error if you don't define \abstract{}. As I found out now apa6 does not. Lesson learned :) – shkelda Feb 8 '12 at 10:41
