Braingle Word Search Flaw

There's a flaw in timing. To get top scores, people can cheat doing stuff like take a picture of the word search, then pause the timer while they find a word in the picture. Then unpause to answer that one and pause to find the next. Can tell a handful of people do it that way to get in the top scores, like nchatcher has the top score in nearly all word searches with scores like 24 seconds for 18 words. Obviously cheated like that to get it.
So scores shouldn't be listed in the top scores if timer gets paused in the game.
