This is an abbreviation list that was posted..

Not an acronym list.

Acronyms form words:

FeeBee (acronym for FBI)

Abbreviations do not form words:

FBI (each letter pronounced individually-abbreviation for Federal Bureau of Investigation)

You're welcome.

Technically, you are correct on the difference between an acronym and an abbreviation. However, if we are going to be technical, then FBI is not a true abbreviation, it's an initialism:

Acronyms, of course, are abbreviations where the abbreviation is formed from letters of other words (usually the first letter of each word, though not always). The part of the definition of acronym that many people miss is that the resulting abbreviation needs to be pronounceable as a word. Examples of this would be things like RAM (Random Access Memory); LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation); NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), OPEC (Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries), and TASER (Thomas A. Swifts Electric Rifle)

Initialisms are very similar to acronyms in that they are made up of letters of some name or phrase, usually the first letter of each word as is common with acronyms. The difference between an acronym and initialism is that the abbreviation formed with initialisms is not pronounced as a word, rather you say the individual letters, such as FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation), CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), and DVD (Digital Video Disk).

And, of course, if it’s just a shortened form of a word, like “ex.” for “example”, then it’s neither an acronym nor an initialism, rather just an abbreviation.

The list provided is really a mixture of acronyms, initialisms, abbreviations, with maybe even a slang term or two (E.g. furry kids)....and states so in post #2. I will go ahead and change the thread title to reflect it.

------------------------------------
On a side note, and completely off-topic, if you want to have some fun and don't already know it.....look up the origins of the acronym for TASER. You may be surprised that it comes from a 1911 book. However, please do not post the results here or talk about it, as it will run afoul of our site regs and I will have to delete the posts. It's just an interesting fact that many people may get a kick out of.
