When we were all together in an office, that's exactly what we did. It was so easy to just lift your head and engage with someone on something in the moment. But if you saw they had their earbuds/headphones in, you squashed that and sent an email instead.

Personally, I try to use email for anything that isn't time-sensitive, as I get pinged in Slack so very much. Now when I go heads-down, I log out of Slack altogether and set my status to DND. But it is tough to get everyone to respect that.
