We already had this conversation – it’s in webster’s, and Eliana was kind enough to post the link. 🙂

I still don’t believe in it. In any case it’s awkward and I know there are better, more precise ways of saying what it supposedly means. http://www.wsu.edu/~brians/errors/impactful.html <– I love this site for double-checking tricky English things! It’s the first result on the Google search linked above.

i bet impactfullingly isn’t in any dictionary or anywhere on goo machine. It is my hope that this page gets indexed for impactfullingly.

Impactful is NOT a word. It has pervaded the english language since the late 50’s-early 60’s. It can be found in pseudo-dictionaries. Its use is a linguistic tragedy, much like ‘irregardless.’
