    I would only use one dash, more than one looks spammy. But I have a few single dash domains and they work fine.

    It's really a matter of preference.

    If the domain without the dashes was available I would get it, because it would be easier to remember for visitors if they'd like to return, and because it looks a little more clean.

    But, if it's not availabe go for the domain with the dashes. I have plenty with dashes that are doing quite well.
