Who form an organization called the Web, which is, if not commonly known, at any rate not actively hidden.

Except it's not really an organization, it's more of a network of connections between scholars.  And while they contain a common interest in studying unsavory subjects, there have been some true benefactors of mankind in their number.  You have to study curses to know how to curb them.
