Title: Incorrect syntax.

Comment:
The [\(]{1} simplifies to \( here. The [\)]{1} simplifies to \) here. When there's only one character, there's no need to use character group syntax. Additionally, the {1} is completely redundant. The [\.| |\-]{0,1} simplifies to [\s.-]? here. The [\.|\-| ]? simplifies to [\s.-]? here. Using pipes within a character group is completely incorrect.
