Interesting. I take it that "more" does not pass through ANSI codes at

Actually, 'more -R' also passes colors on FreeBSD. So maybe you can always add -R if PAGER=more on *BSD (any of them) ? This will fix this issue.

I know, it is unpleasant when you add some new minor feature (like term colors), and people begin to complain about some related issues. But turning colors off isn't a good approach also. App just needs to be smarter about when and how to use them.

I would go even further, and convey even more information with colors. For example, make all dates which are less than 24 hours red.
