I asked some question and someone answered And then I comment on the answer. And he also comments on my comment. And I comment on his comment, and so on.

Then the following sentence appeared

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

If I click the button then we may be in a chat room.

Here my question is: Who makes the sentence? Does he, who answer to my question, invite me? Or this site, i.e., math.stackexchange.com, reply to them, who give comments, for prohibiting comments?

    It is automatically generated by the StackExchange software when it detects that a few users are repeatedly commenting on each others comments. Comments were never designed for extensive conversations and the software tries to redirect you to a more appropriate corner of the site. – Bart van Ingen Schenau Nov 10 '15 at 12:12

This is automatically generated by SE.

Generally, extended comments are discouraged, and it is recommended to take it to a chat room so that comments can critique questions and answers. Moderators automatically get a flag when there is 20 comments on a post, so it's encouraged that you move it to chat yourself. It automatically creates a link to a brand new room as well.

If someone else invites you t chat, you may see a comment by another user like this:

Let us continue this discussion in chat.

With a link to the chat room.
