Yes, I ran into the same mistake when I published the recipe on MGO
because it contains code which is not necessary.

No, gnus-demon-scan-mail-ps doesn't exist in gnus-demon.el either, at
least in my file.

I think the _only_ code you need to add to the your personal
configuration is

(gnus-demon-add-handler 'gnus-demon-scan-news 5 10)

because this one makes Gnus periodically check mails _and_ news.

I will delete the recipe 302 on MGO today.

I'll watch you drown in the shower. Pushing my life through your open eyes.
I must fight this sickness, find a cure, I must fight this sickness."
