Format CompactFlash?

I have been taking photos for 20 some years now and have just recently moved to digital. I did a lot of research and read many threads and finally settled on the 40D.
I love it.

My question though is this: Is there any benefit to formating the CompactFlash card each time I remove my images from the card? I have read some things that say there is a benefit and others that say it is not necessary.

Can anyone shed some light on this? Is there a benefit, if so, what is it.

Thanks
