It is only done to ensure you can use the Internet in those cases where for some reason your DNS can not be found or reached. An example of that would be if you run Linux Mint on a virtual machine, and you have not configured the virtual machine's network correctly.
So, investigate your network configuration as for some reason your ISP's DNS can not be reached (your ISP will have details on its DNS).

Set the size of dnsmasq's cache. The default is 150 names. Setting the cache size to zero disables caching.
