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

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 

remove bulk access


remove domain

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

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!
