You should be able to delete or move into the archive any type of alerts 
you like based on a search.  You can do this by going into search, 
entering a search which results in the types of alerts to be deleted, 
and selecting 'delete' or 'move into archive' at the bottom of the screen.

Of course, I've never actually DONE this, but it should work :-).  I 
have my snort rules set up pretty well to filter false positives at this 
point, so I don't get many of them.
