That's not the greatest solution, as now you would be losing the  
content of the comments, one of the main considerations of SEO to  
begin with. Adding a rel="nofollow" to the links that goes to the sub- 
pages might do the trick, as long as the link to the main post page  
isn't nofollowed.

When you do that, Google won't spread the "juice" from the main post  
page, but juice from the secondary pages will flow up toward the  
primary page.

Remember, nofollow doesn't mean noindex. Google WILL index the  
secondary comments pages and give them their own pagerank, independent  
of the nofollow referer. Thus, any benefit that they might have should  
be transfered to the page that you want your pagerank to rest upon.
