Entering credit card number without spaces and dashes

I am often surprised to see many websites require that the credit card
not be entered with any spaces or dashes. This is very trivial to
remove those characters that I wonder about the security of my cc
number given the developer can not code this . Am I missing something
about this?

It's just extra work.  Most credit card processors want the card number  
without spaces and blanks.  And many sites pass the information directly  
on to the credit card processor.

Parsing the card number would require an extra step for the customer or  
something like CURL to post the info to the card processor.
