Definition: An acronym for ‘middle-aged men in Lycra’ coined by a British market researcher to describe well-off cycling nuts.

In a sentence: “No MAMIL’s life is complete without a spiritual journey to the mountains.”
—Dominic Casciani, BBC News

  1. This post is seriously helpful. I’m able to override author’, email’ and url’ default settings, but I am not able to override comment_field’, it is getting duplicated, i.e. the default textarea is also appearing with my custom comment textarea. Any help would be appreciated.
