I had a thought last night that when people are leaving a comment on a question or an answer, they are trying to engage with the person who wrote that question or answer.
Many times, there is hope that they will respond in the comments or adjust their post - but often times it falls on deaf ears. Other times, the comments go back and forth so much that it generates an automatic chat room offer.
Given the nature of comments is ephemeral, and they're there to try and improve a post, why not just automatically create a room where it can be discussed? Those rooms can be removed over time, which keeps the question/answer section much cleaner as well.
This would keep the comments section incredibly clean and let those who do want interact do so in a place that is separate from the main question/answer.
I'm probably missing something here, but wanted to raise the idea to the group.
