Why is Bermuda shown as a Caribbean topic?

Given that Bermuda is located in the North Atlantic far closer to North Carolina than to the Bahamas, the reason Bermuda is shown as a Caribbean topic rather than North American is that people generally don't think of Bermuda as being part of North America. Rather, they tend to consider Bermuda to be a warm island nation to the southeast of the United States and thus more in line with other Caribbean countries. Subsequently, while technically inaccurate, Bermuda has been associated on this site with the Caribbean to assist people in finding it.
