Do spaces or punctuation matter in a TCPA match?


If the removal of a space turns two adjacent words into one word, a mismatch will result. However, if two adjacent words remain separate, it does not matter how many spaces are between them.

For example, the phrases ‘example phrase’ and ‘examplephrase’ are seen as different by LeadiD and will result in a mismatch. The phrases ‘example         phrase’ and ‘example phrase’ are seen as identical by TCPA Guardian and will result in a match.



Jornaya removes all punctuation when performing a check for TCPA match. So, the phrase ‘example.Phrase’ is not the same as ‘example. Phrase’ because the removal of the period would result in one word in the first phrase, but two words in the second.
