As flams are usually quieter than the first hit sometimes you can gate (fairly drastically and fast) effectively but chances are you'll end up with a weird sounding track and there will be some flams that slip through anyway. Replacement can be a god send if you are DAWing it.

I agree that it is a set up/performance thing and that most drummers are not aware of how much it is happening (kinda like string ssskweakss for guitar players) pointing it out will go a long way though ultimately, the player will have to alter his technique.

I feel your pain.
