You still can if you're selective about which hierarchies you take:

abuse at mooli:~$ df -h /var/spool/news/
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdc5             3.9G  101M  3.4G   3% /var/spool/news

(Usenet II and bofhnet on tradspool, as it so happens.)

ISIHAC game to complete Christmas cracker jokes:
Humph: Jeremy, what do you get if you eat too many Christmas decorations?
Jeremy: Yule logs.
Humph: The answer is "tinselitis".
