Improvement #189

Avoid taking text as a comment for the task

The standard situation:

User: I had a bad day
Orangutan: I guess this is the name of new task... Should I stop the current one and start new task?
User: No
Orangutan: You want me to rename your current task with this name?
User: No!
Orangutan: Then I did not understand what you meant...

I believe there is a way to prevent this... That is to avoid taking text “I had a bad day” as a task description.

One of possible solutions: Often user answers on Orangutans question in a different way (not expected by Orangutan). This is treated as a description. We could check if there was a question and if so write something like:

Orangutan: Answer the question first! Then let's talk about task...

It is good idea also to notify a creator if the situation above occurs (two No’s mean that Orangutan did not understand the request).
