    Hello,
    sometimes user sends one charachter like '?'
    I created AIML to handle it but aimlbot ignores and send exception to log:
    4/13/2011 4:40:17 PM: The bot could not find any response for the input: ? with the path(s):
    from the user with an id: myname

    dear megetron,

    the AIML standard deletes all the punctuation symbols both from  the user input and the AIML: a category with just a "?" becomes a empty category. non way, in pure AIML and AIMLbot, to capture these inputs.

    ciao
