Using ACM acmart template, I can use \settopmatter{printacmref=false} to remove the reference under abstract, but there are two ruler lines still lingering, see the image below. Any idea how I can get rid of them? TIA

\settopmatter{printacmref=false} % Removes citation information below abstract
\renewcommand\footnotetextcopyrightpermission[1]{} % removes footnote with conference info
\pagestyle{plain} % remove running headers





Other people complained too. So a design change was made: in the current version of acmart there are no rules around abstract.
