Capacitive sensor electrode protection resistance

Hello everyone, I am a new member and I ask for information about the project described in: Arduino Playground - CapacitiveSensor

In particular I ask if to avoid potentially destructive accumulations of electrostatic charges on the electrode used as a sensor, it is advisable to use a high value resistance connected between the sensor electrode and GND / ground.
Thank you very much in advance!
