Is it necessary to bulk erase a tape before re-using it?

Question:
Is it necessary to bulk erase a tape before re-using it?

Answer:
No, it is not necessary, as your camcorder or VCR will pass the tape by an erase head before recording a new signal on it. However, it is also not a bad idea to bulk erase the tape, as it will ensure that no portion of the original recording will remain in any pauses in the new recording.
