Quorom and special resolutions

Depending on the number of members who are going to vote against the motion and the quorom requirement for the group, it might have been easier to simply show up to the meeting, once the resolution is before the group move the previous question and vote down the resolution. If a majority of members is required for quorom and a majority to pass the motion and a majority are against the resolution then it is easier to vote the resolution down than to not attend the meeting.

Well, the Previous Question will require 2/3 in favor, and we don't know where the dividing line is in the membership on this resolution, so it may not be that easy. So, there most likely will be debate, and who knows how the vote might go after that? The resolution may even get adopted! If not, the motion, when defeated, can be renewed again at the next meeting, and the next, and so on. So, it isn't over and done with by one vote in the negative. Not that quorum busting solves any problems either, but at least it eliminates the possibility of an unexpected affirmative vote.
