Dembski has avoided the whole CSI fiasco lately. I can find only one place where he has mentioned "specified complexity" or "CSI" in the past year, and that's in his ID Primer class last March. (Can anyone find another?)
He has laid a logically bankrupt foundation and he doesn't dare try to build on it or even defend it, knowing that anything he says will receive an immediate debunking from the scores or hundreds of folks who see through his smoke and mirrors.
If he breaks this trend and responds to Allen, he'll just insult Allen and tell him to read NFL, or he'll say that Allen doesn't understand his use of the terms complexity or specifity. (And he'll neglect to give formal definitions of either word. Dembski's M.O. is to avoid committing to formal definitions, allowing himself to move goalposts at will.)
