Not True.

If you look back at some of Max's messages, you will find that
spaces and commas are the same until you put just one comma in.
Than everything before the comma and everything after the comma
become two keyword phrases.

So the answer is either
A) use single words with spaces and no commas, or
B) use commas to seperate a mixture of keywords and keyword phrases.
