I am trying to learn wget better. However when I run my code it still downloads the forum section. Where am I going wrong?

    wget --recursive --no-clobber --page-requisites --html-extension --convert-links --limit-rate=50k --random-wait --exclude-domains http://domain.com/forums/ --no-parent http://domain.com/

http://domain.com/forums/ isn't a domain, it's a URL. --exclude-domains won't work with it.

Try --exclude-directories=/forums/.
