The most recent answer that I could find here was posted in October, 2018 and that you cannot. I understand respect that enabling comments is the nature of a social network. I also don't see a means of doing this within Yammer. I'm curious if anyone knows more about this, and even if something new may be coming with the anticipated changes coming to Yammer? Thanks in advance.

@JoleneHanrahan The ability for a group/community admin to close conversations on specific threads in Yammer is a key feature of New Yammer, coming later in 1H2020.
