Hi,

e.g. you could read the whole file as one string, delete empty 

lines,convert the string to a stream and read the stream like:

Import[StringToStream[yourString],"Table"]. However, I think an easier 

solution is to add the comment as an additional column and delete it 

after importing by:

t=Import[..];

t[[All,Range[number_of_columns]]]

this even works if not all lines have a comment.
