What Condiments Really Need To Be Refrigerated?

Per JustAnotherDave's reply to the Mustard Topic regarding what condiments should or should not be refrigerated....I realize that some items state REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING. But what really needs to be refrigerated after opening? I have Thai Sweet Chili Sauce in my pantry. I did not put that in the fridge once I opened it. I did put my Sesame Oil in the fridge because I've read it can become rancid otherwise. All my vinegars? In the pantry. Soy Sauce? In the fridge. But does it really need to be? Discuss!
