That's strange since the methods list ( 
http://miroirs.ironie.org/condorcet/condorcet.org/emr/methods.shtml ) 
refers to crowding. I guess the admin (Blake Cretney?) forgot to add the 
term to the glossary.

If you're wondering what crowding is, it is a clone failure that doesn't 
harm nor help the candidate that is being cloned. For instance, the 
winner might be B, then after you clone A, the winner changes to C.

The Wikipedia article on the independence of clones criterion shows 
several examples of clone failure: 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independence_of_clones_criterion, such as 
a crowding failure example for Copeland's method.
