I work with SEO, and have never heard of anyone being penalized for 
having both http://mysite.com and http://www.mysite.com. If you can find 
any examples of this specifically please let me know, as it would be a 
substancial change in how google has worked.

The link you posted is VERY different. Instead of coming up with his own 
content, he took something that had been bouncing around, or some 
"search engine optimized" package and used that. Duplicating content is 
a PROBLEM in which people generate thousands of worthless duplicated 
pages which are optimized to get high SERPs in google and then put ads 
on them in an attempt to make money. That is what they are cracking down 

But again, I could be wrong, and if you have any specific examples where 
someone has been penalized for having these specific subdomains I would 
be interesting.
