How should i install a group packages (gnome)?

I installed gnome by using 'pacman -S gnome' and now i want to uninstall it. What should i type? Is it 'pacman -Rs gnome' or 'pacman -Rc gnome' ? Because i had installed some packages (evolution, anjuta) that depends on some of gnome components before i invoke 'pacman -S gnome'.
I just want to delete all packages that installed by 'pacman -S gnome' and also do not required by evolution and anjuta.
When i type 'pacman -Rs gnome', pacman reports the dependencies problem..

not sure if this is working on a group, but I just read that pacman -Rd will remove programs with no dependency check..

just a though,  -> Linux Help portal for Linux and ArchLinux (in swedish)

pacman -Sg gnome
(to see what's in the group)

pacman -Si evolution anjuta
(to see what they depend on)

Then uninstall the stuff in the gnome group that evolution and anjuta don't need.
