[Solved] salesforce Dataloader : field ‘Description’ can not be filtered in a query call

happyLion Asks: salesforce Dataloader : field ‘Description’ can not be filtered in a query call
I am using dataloader to look for and extract certain emails(tasks) that must have the word “igloo” in them, I tried to do ‘description’ contains “igloo” and got an error saying the description field cannot be used to filter (so why even include it?)

apparently because ‘Description’ is a longtextarea-type it cannot be used in a query?
enter image description here
any work-arounds to this or to my problem?
