That is a terrible query.
You should never use
Code:
where a !! b !! c in (select a !! b !! c ...)


if you really want to use 'not in' you should write
Code:
where (a,b,c) not in (select a,b,c ...)


It is very likely that a correlated subselect is more performant.
Code:
from table1 t1 where
not exists (select 1 from table1 t2 where ...
and t1.a = t2.a and t1.b = t2.b and t1.c=t2.c)
