I decided to try to suppress using:

Suppress gen_id 137, sig_id 1

that looks correct... i don't think case matters but all of my threshold.conf 
entries are lowercase...

But suppression doesn't seem to work, after restarting snort the alerts still get through.

gotta ask... you are looking at new entries after making the threshold.conf 
change and restarting your snort, correct?

If I try at the snort.conf by commenting out the preprocessor wouldn't I be suppressing all SSL alerts?

yes, that's why i pointed you to the preprocessor.rules stub file in 
/path/to/your/preproc_rules directory ;)

Hi All,
     If I want to limit or block all reporting on Snort Alert [137:1:0]

Would this work to limit it to one for every minute via the threshold.conf. Is there an easy way to block it all 

event_filter \
    gen_id 137, sig_id 1, \
    type limit, track by_src, \
    count 1, seconds 60

yes, that will limit is to one alert every minute...

to disable it completely, you might comment the rule out in your
preproc_rules/preprocessor.rules file if you are using that... i /think/ that's
where the stub is located...
