I've not been following this thread so I apologise if I'm repeating what
someone else has already stated.

I read/saw an interesting blog from Matt Cutts
(http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/) the other day where he was asked about
using underscores (_) and hyphens (-) in the URL as space deliminators and
he said that for Google the hyphen (-) is better because they assume the
underscore (_) is part of the work (i.e. search for ws_ftp)

And here's the post: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/dashes-vs-underscores/

Just thought I'd throw it in :)
