Blacklisting packages with "slackpkg"???

Hello fellow slackers, I have been using Slackware for quite some time now. I'm trying to utilize slackpkg for updating my system. When I originally installed Slackware, I installed it minus any of the KDE packages (KDE, KDEi) and also without any of the "y" or "Games" packages. Now when I update my system, I would like to do so without any of the KDE or kernel packages. I am aware of the blacklist file in slackpkg and I have read the vague man page but still don't know how go about blacklisting those packages. Do I have to blacklist every individual package in those directories or can I blacklist the directory itself. Can anyone give my an idea???

You can type

slackpkg blacklist kde
and you will get a list of all KDE/I packages to choose.
