Unfortunately, this command doesn't work for me.

I ask around and most of my coworkers have LESS="-R".
Only the coworker that doesn't really use his Mac and has
no customizations does not have $LESS defined.

Therefore, I think it is likely some third party component
that sets $LESS.

Do you have homebrew, iTerm2, and/or oh-my-zsh installed?
