BJS News: Captcha code now required on comments

Because of the massive amount of spam that we have been receiving lately, I’ve added a requirement that you type one of those hard-to-read codes shown as an image before you can comment on posts here.

I’m hoping it won’t inconvenience our readers too much; but we have to break this cycle of spam somehow. I’ve avoided this as long as possible as I personally hate these on most sites; hopefully the one that I’ve chosen is readable enough so you won’t have to try to interpret the characters two or three times.

If you have problems with it, please contact me.


About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord,, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

Norm has been involved behind the scenes in many of the "go-to" websites for Lutherans going back many years.

  1. Thank you for all your hard work, Norm. It is truly unfortunate that such things would become necessary, but it shouldn’t surprise us that the Old Adam would require such measures to be taken.
