Those are two very different memories, long term and short term.
Short term would be affecting the last few minutes. And the idea is that being cloned is a traumatic experience, it's why seeing your own dead body should PROBABLY freak you the fuck out. Realizing you're a copy of a dead guy, everything about yourself isn't "You", you're just a replication of someone else. It's kind of an existential nightmare.

The brain tends to handle trauma like this by locking it down, it represses intense trauma.  It makes physiological sense for there to be some memory loss, and more then making RP sense, there's a reason to do it in the form of helping to impair valid hunting (Can't scream BOB McMOP IS A LING the moment you revive) and it gives Antags some sort of reason to not perma kill everyone they meet, because you SHOULD forget who they are, so your being revived will frequently screw them over less often.

There's arguments for and against CMD.

I'd agree with this. It depends, though, if people actually played any CMD, it could be promoted at least.

Talking about the trauma of "realizing you're copy of dead guy", had once this here... for good funs the doctor there played along, trying to convince me the rest of that shift, that I am a drug addict and should get the fix soon to make the hallucinations fade away.

Were they all player controlled, or one controlled by you and two braindead clones?

That geneticist Mounsion there took Jean form shortly after, to further drive my character crazy. Clones were braindead, guess there is no mechanism to sign up playing the "extra" clones. That would be a possibility, to make multiple player-controlled clones of one person, with that pod setup. Talk about cloned security army. Or not.

Not a fan of forgetting who attacked you when cloned. If you remember who you are and your profession, why would you forget what hurt you? Especially what hurt you. Although if prescanned before the murder you should not remember at all who touched you or the events leading up to your murder. But what do i know that's just my thoughts on clone memory disorder.

In my head, since dying, your killer and how you died are the most "recent" memories that brain has the brain only keeps them in short term memory upon death. When cloned, the cloner fails to restore that short term memory, which is why you "forget" who killed you. Which also accounts for how you remember who you are and what your role is. It's a sort of retrograde amnesia of a traumatic experience.

From a gameplay standpoint, if an antags kills me and leaves me in a state that can be cloned (aka doesn't gib me, strand my corpse somewhere it'll never be found or steal my brain) then it's kind of just good sportsmanship for lack of a better term. I've seen a guy get cloned, pop out of the cloner and immediately start screaming on comms "X IS A CHANGELING" when nobody was any wiser and said antagonist had been trying to keep a low profile. That to me is kind of powergaming.
