Yes because a fork != distro.

FreeBSD
OpenBSD
NetBSD
DragonFlyBSD

Some smaller ones:

MirOS
MidnightBSD

PC-BSD and DesktopBSD are neither forks nor distros (in terms of a Linux distro). They are preconfigured FreeBSDs.

BSD first was a patchset to original UNIX in the 70s. Later it was a fork. SunOS was a fork of BSD and so on. So there is nothing wrong about it. If _you_ don't like a fork, _you_ will not use it - so in the end the community decides about the outcome of a fork.
