Wiping out brackets is problematic

2
Summary by Jdlrobson

We decided to only wipe brackets out which contain at least one space.

Consider the following example:

A googolplex is the number 10googol, or equivalently, 10(10100).

Wiping out brackets gives us the very confusing summary:

A googolplex is the number 10googol, or equivalently, 10.

We can look for spaces in parenthetical and only remove them if there is one to avoid this issue.
