Crap, I never realized that I didn't need the colon in the less command. Always used it like vi (muscle memory) and never bothered to check on this. Thanks! #TIL
You should see it like this: the Devs of less were clever enough to not make the colon a problem for vi. Probably because they were using vi ;)
