Washing Herbs

I buy fresh herbs pretty frequently and generally rinse them before using but I can't given any reason other than habit. They basically never have actual dirt or grime on them (not visible, at least), and sure other people have touched them with possibly unclean hands, but I doubt rinsing in water will do anything to bacteria.

So is washing herbs really necessary?
