Default semi-hot soups in cold fridge

putting "hot" anything into a cold refrigerator. He claims it makes the
item "sour". True?

I put semi-hot soups into the fridge to cool faster. Letting the
soup/whatever cool on the range, then putting in fridge, causes hot item
to spoil sooner, IME.

What say the brethren?

It's pretty obvious if you cool it, biological and chemical
reactions will slow down, so it will take longer to sour.
OTOH you will get lots of nasty condensation in your fridge,
unless you cover the soup or whatever.
This is rather OT here ....
