Are you suggesting that I am a social player who does not know the Laws of Badminton?
Because that would be pretty accurate.

Social players are less interested in the official rules and regulations

I just found a publication that clears this up:
http://www.internationalbadminton.or....aspx?id=10513 and download the document "Recommendation to technical officials". On page 6 you'll find:
3.5.2 A shuttle invading from an adjacent court shall not automatically be considered a “let”. A
“let” shall not be called if, in the opinion of the umpire, such invasion:
220.127.116.11 has gone unnoticed by the players; or
18.104.22.168 has not obstructed or distracted the players.

So, according to 22.214.171.124 , it is up to the players to choose to stop the play, because when they do, that rule has come into effect.
For me, I always always stop the play, because I don't want to worry about stepping on the bird and twisting my ankle... unless of course, our side is one or two shots away from finishing a kill shot.

^ Ah, but if the ump does not call it, then the rule says it depends on whether the players have noticed it or has been distracted/obstructed by it. If it had occured on my side and we were only 1 to 2 shots away from decidedly winning the point, then I can "choose" to ignore it and keep on playing. However, on the flip side, if our side was losing anyways, then I can "choose" to be distracted/obstructed by it, and according to the rule, the ump has to call a let. Understand the difference?

The main point is that it's the umpire's decision when to stop play. If you decide to make your own decision and stop before the umpire has actually called "let", and if the umpire is enforcing the rules properly, then you will lose the point every time.

Well, what do I know? I've never played in any games with an umpire overseeing...

...but also the players motions can be suggestive enough to alter or form the umpire's opinion and hence the decision making though it's only a split second.

It just sucks when you're already in the attacking position and is about to make a kill when the game is stopped.
The umpire here should have good judgment. If I were the umpire, if the shuttle lands on the attacking player/s and kept on attacking because s/he's already in a good position, I wouldn't call a let. If the birdie lands on the defending player/s, it would be a distraction for them coz they're in an awkward position, so I'd call a let. If both players are in a rally and of equal situation, I'd call a let. Again, it would depend on the umpire's good judgment.

it's not necessary a let
if the umpire decides that the shuttle which lands near the court does not distruct the player - LET is not called ...
however if a shuttle lands insede the court, LET shoud be called !!

When I umpire for matches, I do not stop the rally if a shuttle lands on the court unless I can tell that it is gonna disrupt the play. If a player does notice it in the middle of the rally, a let shall be called because he got distracted so it would be unfair to continue the rally since his reaction time would be slower since he's not focusing on the game. If one side, however seems like they will kill the rally within the next shot or so, the umpire will probably let play continue since that birdie wouldn't affect the outcome of the point, but just be a safety net to the player who is about to lose a point.
