I think you don't understand.  I was pointing out that the command you 
specified would print the name '.' and that is all.  It won't descend 
through '.' because you told it to prune all directories not named 
"logs".  That is, I'm trying to point out that it's your *logic* that's 

OP was right in his thinking.  The correct way to approach the problem 
is to ignore (prune) the logs dir, and then to do something with the 
remaining directories.
