I am looking a way to split specific comments (and maybe other card's elements) from an existing card, to a new one.

For example, someone discovered an issue, but posted it as a comment in an existing card. Then the conversation moved on, before it was decided that it belongs on a different card/list by itself.

Duplicating the card, copies all the comments (without exception) as links to the previous card, so they cannot be removed from the new card.

Is there a way to do it or it's a no-go? Thanks in advance.

When you copy a card you have the option to keep the comments, but the comments are copied, not linked, so you can copy a card with links and then remove unwanted comments from the original card. That's not ideal, but is as close as you can get at the moment.

Are you sure that the comments aren't linked? I know that I can remove those that I want from original card, but as I say at my question, I can't remove those that I don't want from the duplicated card... That's the disturbing part and the reason I opened this question. :( – Saxtus Feb 22 '13 at 19:23
Yes - I tried it before I answered - I deleted the original comments and also tried deleting the original card. The comments themselves on the copied item remain. There is a statement above the comment of the form 'A copied comment by B from card C' which links back to the original card, but the comments themselves are not links or linked. Nevertheless - you can't delete the duplicated ones as you say which is an oversight I feel. – Roger Attrill Feb 22 '13 at 20:25
So, bottom line is: I don't like your answer, as it just confirms my own research mentioned on my question, but that is like saying "not liking the truth", so I have to live with it! Thank you for your time! – Saxtus Feb 23 '13 at 7:34
