I haven't followed closely, but if I recall correctly, Bob's comments on your work have fallen into two categories. One category was that you haven't yet learned the fundamentals of measuring complexity. The other is that you seem to be unaware of related published work. I don't see any indication that you have addressed either of these issues.

Famous people are inundated with nonsense from cranks. If you want a slice of their time, you need to clearly distinguish yourself from those cranks. "Calling him out" isn't a very effective strategy for improving your positioning.
