Problem accessing Hackage

I have this weird problem accessing hackage, when the first response
gets delayed by 30 seconds:
http://superuser.com/q/557271/53951

Does anyone else experience it? (No need to reply with "works for me" —
I know that it works for most people.)

Any clues about what can be the problem?

Re: Problem accessing Hackage

Ok, I got what seems to be the correct answer:
http://superuser.com/a/558715/53951

In a nutshell, the misconfiguration of my ISP's DNS results in reverse
DNS queries of my IP address timing out.

So now my questions are:

- can anyone confirm that hackage indeed attempts to do reverse DNS
  lookup on the client's IP address?
- is it really necessary?

I'll try to convince my ISP to fix their DNS, but I'm not sure I'll
succeed, and there may be other people affected by this.
