Any luck on getting it to just hide the comments instead of deleting them?

This still works! We had a service user that logged a lot of spam comments on a PR, so I used this code to remove only those comments:

var comment_headers = document.querySelectorAll('.timeline-comment');
for (var i = 0; i < comment_headers.length; i++) {
    var button = comment_headers[i].querySelector('.js-comment-delete button');
    if (button) {
        if (comment_headers[i].querySelector('.author').text == '<service-account-name>') {
            button.removeAttribute('data-confirm');
            button.click();
        }
    }
}

Still works. If you have many comments that are folded, you'll need to expand them first.

I wanted to resolve ~100 comments and was able to use this:

Array.prototype.forEach.call(document.querySelectorAll('.js-resolvable-timeline-thread-form button'), function(el, i) {
  el.click()
});
