Is the Isle of Man a separate country?

I see the Isle of Man is classified as a separate country by Geocaching.com. When I download to GSAK the cache is shown as in North Yorkshire County but the country is Isle of Man.

P-GC does not show it as a separate country.

Are you sure about that? I teste on a cache GC2D67J and the pgc grease monkey script said "Isle of Man / Michael / Michael"
I map compare I can list all 968 caches I have not logged on Isle on Man with it set as a country
http://project-gc.com/Tools/MapCompare?profile_name=Target.&country=Isle+of+Man&nonefound=on&onefound=on&submit=Filter

I tried i GSAK too with GC2D67J and it is listed as:
"Country: Isle of Man | State: Michael | County: Michael"

Is there a special cache you have a problem with
I have done GC45CC, an Isle of Man cache.

The maps section of the stats shows 5 countries and the Travelling cacher badge only shows 5 countries. I have cached in 5 countries excluding Isle of Man.

Greasemonkey shows this as an Isle of Man cache

That is a completely different problem. The cache you have listed is really an locationless cache and is in the official ignore list for distance, souvenires etc.
 
You can choose if you if to use it in the stats settings directly on http://project-gc.com/ProfileStats/ listed as "Use official ignore list for traveling geocaches"

Thank you. I was not aware of that. I prefer it to be ignored fro stats purposes as we did not visit the Isle of Man
