can I make taskbar items stop flashing?

Is there any way to prevent taskbar items from flashing to request attention? i don't know why, but that is my pet peeve x 1000. No, actually that's too lighthearted a term. The flashing taskbar items irritate me so much that I fantasize about smashing the screen.

Depends what item it is, many have options to turn that off, others you could just replace the icons for, its all a preference
