Demonic Nakshatras – Gana factor?

A not so recent post in the forum referred to demonic nakshatra where the member was worried that most of the planets in his/her chart are in demonic nakshatra. From the post, I gather that by demonic nakshatra the member is referring to the gana factor on horoscope compatibility – dev, manushya and rakshasa.

In my knowledge, The only place gana factor is referenced in within horoscope compatibility. This factor requires that the gana of the woman (refer to the nakshatra where the Moon resides in the kundali) should be better than the man she intends to marry.

I have not seen anyone referring to this factor while interpreting a chart or while making any predictions. I went back and re-read some of the books and notes that I have and could not find anything to this effect.

Alexader, please keep your born again nonsense with yourself. Ganas have nothing to do with someone being demonic. I think your priest must have told you that.

what happens if both the Bride and the Grooms Gana is Rakshas (Demon). Does it mean that they are connected to the evil somehow?

If gana is looked into for compatibility in marriage and the girl must get a husband of superior gana why is it mentioned in some guides that rakshasa gana does not go well with deva, manushya or rakshasa?
Does it mean that those born under the rakshasa gana will lead better lives if single or does it mean that their partners will have a harrowing experience trying to make the marriage work?
I have asked some friends about this but am yet to get a convincing reply.
