Clay vs plastic

For me this issue of clay is only for summer.  there is no use at all for 
them in winter, inside or out, since excess moisture is never an issue 
I really hate to have to bring plants inside in the summer because it has 
been wet for two weeks.
Perhaps the people talking about algae buildup are referring to winter. 
Another thing I like clay pots for are things with massive roots or corms
that want to be pot bound.
When they get too big they just brake the pot themselves or with the help of 
a hammer..  No struggling to cut it off without damaging the roots.
