As a rule of thumb, if desired functionality sounds too specific for
the current scenario and isn't likely to be required for other
scenarios, then an external bot might indeed be more appropriate. If
changing the functionality breaks existing use cases or makes them
harder to use, that's an additional design smell.

Regarding loops, it comes to this: a loop is not easy to avoid if a
message is sent from one source(action) and received back from
another. Looping as a problem occurred also in the scala interpreter
action, but it was fairly easy to avoid because there were ways to
detect that the message came as a result of this same action.
