That's a really interesting observation, because I've noticed that some people are just way more adept at making remarks that have a way of putting someone else down than are others. Lots of times, the ones I'm thinking of are directed to the person who might be most offended.
Since Bob tends to take things so literally, there's nothing he can do about certain types of remarks which are not objectionable on face, but which may be intended to insult when taken in a certain context.

And as much as I bristle when I see this kind of post, it may not be up to me to question the intent to begin with. It's possible I'm reading way more into a post than I should be.
