I was apprehensive when the comment scoring went in to begin with and I don't believe it has served it's purpose.

The rules for voting either direction are seldom adhered to and the repercussions for "trolling" (down votes) seem to antagonize "trolls" to comment more on a given post.

So my vote again is to remove this.

I think a better option to improve the site, which has been mentioned before, is to implement Nested Comments.

Part of your problem can be addressed in doing so; in that if user A. Smith blocks user B. Smith's comments they would now also block any direct responses to user B. Smith's comment at the same time and give User A. Smith far less retaliatory comments to sort through.
