Clearing SMART errors I don't care about?

I have a 250GB drive that I use exclusively for unimportant data. I
run smartd to watch the status of my drives and get regular output like:
smartd: Device: /dev/ad8, 4 Offline uncorrectable sectors
I've been seeing that exact message for a couple of years now and
don't particularly care. I'd like to know if the drive's about to
roll over and die, but I really don't need to know about the same 4
offline uncorrectable errors.
Is there a way to clear that message while leaving SMART enabled on
the drive? I didn't see anything specifically answering it in
smartctl(8) but wondered if I missed something.
