There's a space in your character class, so of course it will be among the 
characters matched/replaced.  But merely deleting it from the character 
class doesn't solve the problem either, since a space character also meets 
the criteria for "not a word character" (\W).  If the objective is to strip 
all characters that are neither a space nor a "word" (a-zA-Z0-9_), then try:

$q=preg replace("/[^ \w]/","",$q);
