Provide a tool for moderators to migrate comments to chat

  • As a moderator do I have a way to convert a chain of comments between two or more participants, not including myself, into a chat room?

  • If not, should moderators have this function?

I find that interesting questions often spawn a lot of comments forming an ad hoc discussion. These are discouraged, yet the interaction is often quite informative. It seems to me that converting these comments into a Chat would be superior to the alternatives I am aware of.
