Curps is a robotic automaton on Wikipedia. While he was once human, Curps slowly degenerated into an android-like creature with a likeness of Commander Data on Star Trek or Robocop. Now, nobody's really sure if there is any remnant of humanity in his cold, machine heart.

However, unlike Data or Robocop, Curps does not patrol the streets of a decaying Detroit or serve aboard the Starship Enterprise. Instead, he leads an ignoble life blocking people from Wikipedia.

His complex blocking system is based on the following criteria;

  1. Jimbo and Company dislike you.
  2. A random word, letter, or character is present in your user name.
  3. His instinctive need as a robot to dispassionately inflict pain on human beings.

Regarding his dual cyborg nature, Curps had this to say:

   
 
I don't know why you are anthropomorphizing the bot, as if it was thinking evil cybernetic thoughts (I'm sorry, SPUI, I can't open the pod bay doors).

In summer 2006, Curps disappeared from TOW, never to be seen again. Recently it was rumored that the thing that once was Curps had the plug pulled on it, literally, because he was a robot. However, even more recent rumors have it that he is going by another name on TOW: Misza13.
