Recently useful comments on questions are being moved to chat because they were marked as "extend conversation" More information here, even comments that contain open questions, are still useful to the post, or are important to understand a post.
A quote by the Moderator moving these comments to chatrooms:
Third, I stuffed up. I should have just deleted these instead of moving them to chat. Notwithstanding, the chat room will wither and die as it is not big enough to be permanently archived.
Comments that are important to posts are being removed and hidden in chatrooms that aren't "big enough to be permanently archived"
Even worse this Moderator moves comments that are critical of their own posts to chatrooms, even ones that hadn't been addressed, or had positive upvotes from other users.

bdb484: "I'm now even more confused by the aggressive removal of comments since the moderator election. The suggestion that four comments could be considered "extended discussion" is totally foreign to me."
This Moderator hasn't just sent useful comments from his own posts to the chatrooms but also unanswered comments on posts of other users.
Although it is within the Moderator's power to remove unneeded comments from the site, should Moderators be able to use these powers for self-promotion?
