Default is it possible to disable bold(bright) color under console?

when some application write, for example, e[1;31m msg e[0m to console, is it possible to just ignore the "1;" which asks to use a bold(bright) color and just write e[31m msg e[0m instead? i don't like bold colors, they make eyes suffering.

i tried setterm -bold off, which doesn't work; and infocmp to dump the terminfo file, remove the bold entry, use tic to save the setting, which only take effect on applications that use the ncurses library.

is there any way to solve this problem?
