do you people not know the definition of "shall not" ?

It does not say "should not", or "it is discouraged" , it says "SHALL NOT"

There is no rule for a loose ball being on the court other than

Whenever a ball is not in play, a player must honor an opponent’s request to remove a ball from the court or from an area outside the court that is reasonably close to the lines.

Which doesn't say anything about it being there, just that if your opponent wants you to clear it you have to honor their request.
