[on-topic] The shot is legal if the net posts are placed directly above the lines of the court. I know this for a fact because a few weeks ago, 4 of our courts were out of action for a day because the net posts (which are placed inside holes drilled into the ground, [apparently this is because these net posts are international regulations, so we have these so the club can hold international tournaments]) had to be moved 1 inch so that they were directly above the lines, for the sake of this very law.
[off topic] The process invovled removing the planks of wood around the holes, extensive drilling, taking out metal holders placed into the ground filling in the existing holes, drilling new holes, replacing the wood around the holes, placing the net posts in the new holes which is more complicated than it looks

This is sort of like hitting a shot when it's clearly out isn't it ? ; it is legal if it goes over, from your side of the net to the your opponents. Although it's rather a dumb shot to hit, it is perfectly legal.

Like its been said... u can curve it around the post (and lower than the post) in tennis and its legal... I've done it before.
I'm sure theres a fluke where u can curve a legal shot thats been hit to you, not just ones that are going out, around the net in badminton (with the help of a brisk draft)

this has been discussed before. and it is perfectly legal. many people want to have their own views of what is legal or not, but the definitive source is always the official rules so any discussion on legality should have cited the relevant clauses in the rules, in this case:
It is a ‘fault’:
13.2 if in play, the shuttle:
13.2.2 passes through or under the net;
13.2.3 fails to pass the net;
13.2.6 touches any other object or person outside the immediate surroundings of the court;

hehe, never did I think my message would have caused so much trouble
I now owe my friend a bottle of wine as he bet me a bottle he was right about the shot being legal.
Next week he loses 15-0 though

The two posts holding the net are placed directly above the lines. In addition the two sides of the net are secured flush with the two sides of the net, so that a shuttle will not pass through any gap between the sides of the net and the posts.
I believe that a shuttle that crosses over the net between the two posts, even if hit from outside the court, is legal. However, in the unlikely situation where the shuttle, hit from outside the court, takes a line of flight that is obviously higher than the net but appears to be marginally outside the sideline but lands on the line, then it will probably be judged in. This may be subject to the umpire and/or linesman's ruling.
A shuttle that is taken 1-2' off the ground from outside the side court, and it goes around, not over, the net is a fault.
