    Every now and then, I hear linesmen shouting "OUT" loudly..

    IMHO, it disturbs players in other courts. It is wholly unnecessary to shout it out. The hand gesture is more than sufficient.

    I think BWF should ban this shouting behaviour from now on..

    True enough, they shld prevent the linesmen from shouting "OUT" unless it is the only game in progress.

    Every now and then is bad, the linesmen/women are required to shout "OUT" even if the shuttle is out by a mile. I really have no clue why they have that rule though.

    this is due to some of the linesmen/women sometime unsure with the decision. so now they have to shout out once the shutter landed and. i think this is better to avoid dispute.
