Hello all,
I came a cross with this word by reading a mailing list.

Context:
"Hot, Cold, Wet ... it's all the same .. But taking a bath just to make a
meaningless and preportedly major decision, now that is a feat wholly on it's own worth noting :D"

The Free Dictionary, Webster, Cambridge Dictionary, Dictionary.com, Collins - they all haven't this word.

Have anybody a idea?

Thanks in advance.

I think that the word the writer intended to use may have been "purportedly".

This means "supposedly" or "believed to be".
