We've had this debate over in the L&L animated gif thread - the idea behind posting animated gifs in spoilers is that for some people it causes the gifs to start at the beginning. This is true for some browsers, not for mine or for most peoples as far as I can tell. Either way that's just the way we all ended up posting there and ||.||.|| who is an epic poster in that thread simply carried the practice over here.
As for the posting each gif in a separate post - I don't really agree with it but I get the point of it - less gifs per page, less page loading time.
