Eggs - to refrigerate or not?

I don't, having once heard a TV chef say that eggs can be kept quite happily at room temperature. Thinking back, it was one of the Two Fat Ladies - possibly the one who died. Uh oh.

Anyway, so far there've been no ill effects here on Steepholm Island. But opinion seems to be divided. The egg box certainly tells me to refrigerate them, but this is somewhat undercut by the fact that in Tesco's the eggs are not displayed in refrigerated units. How's that for a mixed message?

All information and ingrained prejudices are, as ever, welcome.
