The habit of avoiding spaces is probably a holdover from old times where OS's were much more restrictive in filenaming. 

I prefer to work with my computer, not against it. Whenever you want to script something or do something remotely, spaces in file names give you nothing but grief. And I don't think "My Stuff" is so much more readable than "My-Stuff" or "My_Stuff" or ... But to each their own, I guess, if you think that spaces in filenames are so 2010 and avoiding them old hat.
