Iff you have create_all_links set to 1, 
        find /var/spool/news/message.id -type f -links +6
should print all articles posted to 6 or more groups.

If not, above line will find only articles posted to 6 or more groups
that are either local or interesting, and finding the other crossposts
would require reading every article in the spool.  Since that kills
atime expiring, I would not recommend this.

Also, I had to rethink my above statement -- even XHDR fetching *should*
kill those articles.  So IMHO those crossposts should only be possible
if they were fetched before above filter rule was installed.  In case
any are present -- does applyfilter remove them?
