Comment 13 by Jos Gibbons :

The other problem with thinking clones are replicated individuals, which RD points out in TSG, is that if individuals genuinely replicated acquired characteristics would be inherited, which isn't the case.

Can you prove then that there is no epigenetic inheritance in bacteria...?

Or perhaps you mean "It's only a replicated individual if all characteristics are copied!" ?
