i'm not sure when it actually started, but it was recently discussed
on another mailing list.

From:
PRIVACY Forum Digest     Wednesday, 14 February 
2001     Volume 10 : Issue 03

(http://www.vortex.com/privacy/priv.10.03)

Excerpt:

If you don't want to participate in NSI's bulk/marketing 
bonanza, you'll need to avail yourself (*now* that you'll 
know about them) of their opt-outs. Buried within their 
privacy policy it says that you can send notes with the 
text:  

remove bulk access

or:

remove domain

respectively, in the subject lines of e-mail to:

privacy@networksolutions.com

with a list in the body of the message detailing the 
domains (for which you are the registrant) that you wish 
to opt-out.  

It is not detailed how such requests are authenticated, 
nor is any particular format for the lists specified.  If a 
human is reading those requests, they're likely to be 
getting pretty busy very soon!
