    Why is upvote/downvote score that important that the number is visible?

    I don't care about the score itself, but instantly seeing if I have already upvoted a comment would be nice.

      I think having to hover over a comment to view its score might also encourage people to fully read and consider comments before rating them, and therefore also help prevent the cascades of downvotes that occur when users view posts which have already been significantly downvoted (hive mentality). However, this could also be prevented by requiring brief explanations from the users at the time of downvoting, in which case it would be fine to show comment scores at all times.
