Idea to avoid DMD at Poker holdem

Maybe an idea to avoid the "Dead Man Defence" at poker... I feel that this is not employed really often actually (at 2000+ ratings at least) as it is not at the player's advantage after a while but it may be an improvement anyway.

The idea is to keep the same time control but to force players to play a certain pending move before to play a new move in his other games again. In example, I have a pending move in poker games 1,2,5,6 : I play my move in games 1 & 2, my opponents play their moves, then I cannot play in games 1 & 2 again (the symbol in My games wouldn't be "!" but "#") before I played the other moves. Atually it wouldn't be so simple as it may be quite uncomfortable at every move, but something like this if I can detect real DMD.

What do you think about it? BTW did you notice that some of your opponents may use DMD while playing other games?

What if I have several tournament games running and also a real-time game? If I had to respond to all other moves before playing again in the real-time game, I could lose on time.

No problem

... goes without saying :) This is a special case, the rule would be different here.

Does it mean: first in, first out (to answer first in the "oldest" game)? Have I to answer in a predefined order? In this case I would say: no, this is not what I want.

Predefined order?

No, of course it would be hell :) And it would be really painful to find the "right" game to play... No, I have to find a more subtle way where players who do not use DMD wouldn't make any difference with the current system...
