For Dealing with reactions from colleague about being self-taught the comments were moved to chat, and while the majority of them should have headed that way direction, and I agree with the mod that the question makes an interesting topic, the first 3 comments appear to have been clarifications on the question itself:

How do you react now when she acts like that? What have you tried? What specific outcome are you trying to achieve? - dwizum

Is the coworker a recent graduate? How long has this been going on? ... - whrrgarbl

Question: Have you watched her not explain "json" to others? Or does she approach all people as if they don't know basic "technology"? - WernerCD

Are comments here not for clarification of the question, or is the move simply all or none?

    Have in mind that this was also a HNQ, where mountains of comments can stack. In general, comments in those cases tend to become tangential to the issue/question. Chat is better place for such comments.

The "move to chat" function moves everything. Moderators can then selectively undelete comments if not everything should move. I've just undeleted the three comments you identified, which look like requests for clarification. I'm not surprised that they were missed among 43 comments and 54 flags. Unfortunately, sometimes things get missed under high volume, so thanks for bringing your question to meta. (And especially thanks for not using more comments to ask about the missing comments. :-) )

  • I understand that things slip through, and it make sense to Move All instead of X+10 individual, was curious and figured that a more general question to clarify my assumption might be useful. Apr 23, 2018 at 2:41
