How many types of mongers are there?

I'm familiar with "fishmongers" and "fearmongers", but I'm guessing there are others that aren't coming to mind.

@codesections Warmongers, Rumormongers, Whoremongers, Hatemongers, and all of the matching pages on a search of wikipedia with monger in the name @ en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?t (except, probably the people named "Monger").

Originally, monger just meant a seller or dealer of something, then it became someone steeped in something... usually considered bad.

Agreed. The word "peddling" has followed an interestingly parallel trajectory
