Matt Cutts of Google informed everyone that Stephan Spencer's report at News.com that Google now treats underscores as word separators is not 100% correct.

Matt explains that he is having "someone looking at that now" but "wouldn’t consider it a completely done deal at this point." Meaning that currently, Google is not treating underscores as word separators, but they may just do that in the future.

Matt went on to say that if you are starting a new site, you should "pick dashes." But if you have an older site, he said it is probably not "worth trying to migrate all your urls over to dashes."
