Do you Pre Rinse dishes for your Dish Washer? [Moved from Not About Food board]

I'm less concerned about the plates coming out clean than I am about what happens to all the food and grime that gets washed off of the plates. Right now I pass the dishes under the faucet for quick rinse to get any big food residue off then when I'm done I turn on the garbage disposal. I worry that if I don't pre rinse that all that debris will clog something up in the dishwasher or the pipes. What is your experience?

If it matters, I have a GE Triton Dishwasher that was here when I bought the house and don't have an owner's manual for it.
