xHamster taken over with spam accounts - site needs night and weekend moderation

Over the past 6 months xHamster seems to have been taken over by a particular spammer who keeps creating countless accounts and overrunning both the pictures section as well as friend requests with the same spam posts and user profiles that is destroying this site.

In the photo section there's always a new account that uploads thousands of the same Russian images - they're the ones with the solid color border and the description is always advertising a website name. Today's example is hisra88 which, for the past 23 hours, has flooding the site with thousands of images which overrun everyone else's posts. This can be fixed either by using a better Captcha method or limiting new users to upload no more than 30 images for the first 24 hours.

The fake user accounts are just as bad. They always have the same description which is full of redirect links that point to a Russian site. If I allow friend requests I can receive up to 10 of these a day. Basically, 99% of all friend requests are the same person posing as a woman and advertising their Russian site. They are always the same with "Hello boys. My name is Julia!
Login my skype, my intimate photos and videos can be viewed
on my site -----".

Perhaps new accounts should also not be allowed to send any more than 7 friend requests for the first 24 hours.

This site has become almost unbearable because photos are being overrun with the same person uploading the same random images with the color borders and many people no longer accept invites because of the other issue with the Russian link site.

If nothing else, please have one of your moderators regularly check-in on this site, especially on nights and weekends as that is when they seem to attack this website. I always flag them as spam but since no one checks the website on weekends the spam accounts take over and ruin the site to the point were it is driving traffic away.
