A workaround that might be even better to use anyway, is to configure with the IP of a third-party DNS server.
Such a server is OpenDNS, http://www.opendns.com/start/ubuntu.php
What OpenDNS does is it offers DNS services for free so that you can use instead of the DNS server of your provided. In addition to this, they also block websites of spammers, etc through the filtering of DNS resolutions.
