The issue is that you shouldn't put supermarket tomatoes in the fridge. They are picked unripe and won't ripen when cold and will have all the problems people cite. All studies of refrigeration of tomatoes used the supermarket ones to test.

Home grown tomatoes are just fine if picked when fully ripe.
Mr. Gritzer is lying through his teeth. Refrigerated tomatoes are nearly flavorless, as confirmed by many experiments over a period of more than 50 years.
