There was nothing wrong with that soup.  Never take just one person's opinion.  People long ago used to leave pea soup out routinely and much longer than this.  I leave mine out to cool overnight all the time.  Putting hot food into the fridge is actually worse, it compromises everything in the fridge.  I would never do that, there is good reason that people leave food to cool before refrigerating.
