I agree with you about teams that do not know Scrum well. For my current team, I made sure we ran several sprints as close to Scrum as we could manage before opening up for change. The standup was at that point a recurring theme in the retrospective meetings. We have not dropped or modified the other artifacts/ceremonies/roles.

On my previous project I worked for a customer where we as a team agreed to drop the standup meeting after a couple of sprints. We were a small team of 4 (colocated).
