It never ceases to amaze me as to just how stupid some folks can be.
I guess that idiot never understood that weather sealed ≠ water-proof.

I always thought it was some kind of psychological problem, a need to destroy things overriding
common sense.

My Olympus E-M1 II and the 12-100 lens are weather-proof. I just wonder 
what that means exactly. If it rains heavily I can continue to use the 
camera outdoors?

Weather-sealed/Weather-proof means just that, not water-proof, or dive ready. 
Your E-M1, like my X-T2 is Weather-sealed, if fitted with a Weather-sealed 
lens they should be able to tolerate rain, snow, and dusty conditions. 
However, do not take all of that for granted, and it is always best to wipe 
and/or dry the kit off before opening any lens, or sealed covers.

If you are going to actually take the camera into water it is time to invest 
in a proper water housing such as one of these from Meikon. They provide for 
Olympus and Fujifilm, and are reasonably priced.
