Thats rather harsh. I am not the brightest but I don't see how it is being run into the ground.
Yes Lunar is a fork of sorts, depends on how you want to interpret the history of Sorcery. I was using Sorcery at the time when Kyle (for various reasons) dropped the project. In fact it was questionable after he left if anyone was going to carry on with such a great idea.
I am glad Kyle's excellent idea has carried on through both "distros".
