Thats my opinion.
I wouldn't completely agree with this although he brings up good points about ADC being a good harasser in mid lane and shrugging off silence.
AP can go top and still excel really well. It is situational and I pick depending on whether or not they counter but I always have success going top as Akali, Kennen and Diana. It's just not ideal for certain AP champs to go top... but Akali destroys. Jayce is a really great solo top laner and I destroyed a pretty good Jayce with Akali (of course before lvl 6 you won't be able to win in trades against Jayce but if you have Spell Vamp gun and build Sheen and//or Rylai's, you will outdamage and out sustain him. Also, Jayce is limited to skills and while his hammer skills will be able to keep you at a distance, you have 3 charges on your ult to do damage which is more than enough time to kill Jayce with Akali.)
However, I really stress actually countering the enemy champions. I can lane against Malphite with Akali top very well too but like I said, it's preferable to counter them. It'll just help out the team more.
