I have never _heard_ <affectatious> in modern use where it was not a corruption of <efficacious>. I notice people in speaking are quite confused between using <affect> and <effect> and <affectatious> can be a passive-aggresive reflection of the confusion. I had no idea the word could actually mean <affectation> and <affected>, but I believe this is a long obsolete usage and peoples' intended meaning is probably <efficacious> . . . If I was to use the word and expect to be understodd, I would have to define the word by a context, i.e.. "Spelling on line, you may have noticed, is affectatious- utterly atrocious."
