Yes, eggs have had good press and bad press. As far as what I've heard, any person with cholesterol concerns should limit weekly intake to 2 or 3. People with no such concerns, it would appear there is not a problem eating eggs.
The yolk is generally seen as the culprit, as this is where the fat and cholesterol is found. (ref Luc's message for breakdown of it). Thus the popularity of late for white's only omelettes (YUK)
There was a study done here over the course of a month - a fit, healthy person, no chol. or heart probs etc., ate as many eggs as he wanted over the course of a month (2 min. per day), and they did all the assays you would expect, chol being the main point of the exercise. At the end of it they did more assays on him, and found his bad chol. levels had actually lowered.
So, I'm still confused as to if they are good or bad for you, but less prone to worry now.
