I think you might be referring to operating system drop-down menus. In
my opinion, the cacophony of opinions - even those of perceived experts
in the field - do not stand up to logic. Fact is, any CSS or
script-based menu can be made accessible if the web designer knows what
he or she is doing - and it's ridiculously easy.
