Nearly all their posts have a gif file in them (usually an animated banner from some insurance company or betting office).
However these don't show up here, probably due to a spam filter, but I'm not sure on that.

The accompanying text usually is random nonsense indeed, but I've seen them take a sentence from someone else's previous post and use that as a new post as well.

Yep thats it. Quote the post to see whats what.
Although you say they dont show maybe due to filter, im sure that if i can quote it then it does exist (in code or yada yada etc.) so web crawlers will most likely pick it up.

And also, writing sp** or S**mers or variations of seems to bring more of them.
