It is fairly awkward to disable the notifications either within the AppleScripts or for each script within Growl. Fortunately, there is a simpler alternative. For Growl 1.2.2 simply check the Hide all notifications within the Growl preference-pane as shown below:

As long as this is checked, no Growl notifications will be displayed. If you use the Growl menu bar control, it will be greyed out to show you that Growl notifications are disabled. To restore normal Growl operations, uncheck the same box.
