What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 122 Stack Exchange communities.

I just triggered the new feature for comments that look like a discussion:

Please avoid extended discussions in comments. Would you like to automatically move this discussion to chat?

I'd like to take the suggestion but some of the existing comments are germane to the answer and are best left in place. The wording implies that the comments will be deleted and moved to a chat room - is this the case or am I reading it wrong?

No, they are not moved. They are actually copied, and final comment is added with link to chat room.
